How I'm So Much Younger Now

How I’m So Much Younger Now

I’m getting old – my God, you know.  It’s horrible because I am, in a way, in a good sense, a pathological person, in the sense that for a long time, I behaved as if I was still young, like the future is ahead of me.  I was never a so-called mature normal person. All of a sudden from pretending to be young, I discovered, “Oh my God, I’m in late 50s, now my 60s.  I hate this.
