conversations with old people.

I just ended the longest conversation i have ever had with another human being ever. The old man and i [mainly the old man] covered such topics as social security, social security supplements, medicare, medicaid, prescription drugs, ordering prescriptions from Canada, his tv, tiger woods on his tv, the big black hole that occasionally pops up on his tv, his antenna, how much high definition TVs cost, how much they used to cost, how much they'll cost just after thanksgiving, how much flatter TVs have gotten over the years, hiding money in safe deposit boxes at various banks so the government cant see it, occasionally spending some of it on a new porch, evil termites, dead termites and various other fun and somewhat related topics. Thankfully my phone rang just as i was about to shoot myself and i lived to tell the tale.
Also i just turned 26 y'all. That's still a cool age right?

Belated wishes gal, some conversations are really worth to be cherished and maybe this was one today that you had :)
And what did that mean - "my phone rang just as i was about to shoot myself and i lived to tell the tale."

Post-naivety and pre-cynicism, 26 is just about the perfect age i think. It was, for me at least. Happy bday...You're telling us you wanted to shoot yourself. The thaathaa is probably telling his grandson about this nice conversation he had with this girl, who had to leave cos she got a phone call, and the grandson would be wanting to shoot himself...

Belated birthday wishes! And yes, 26 is cool.

Watch out for 27 though. Most geniuses have died when they were 27. I lived in constant fear all through 27. Turned 28 and realised, I'm not much of a genius anyway and like you survived to tell the tale. :)

Yes, 26 is cool. Agree with Anon, two more yrs of goodness left.

26 is cool, and whoever said that there are 2 more years of goodness left is wrong.. there is atleast 10 more years of it left!
Happy Birthday! :)

Happy Birthday! Sniff. 26. I used to be 26 once, a couple of decades ago. Live it up!
Cheers.

26 is good - you can still ignore looming 30 if you try and can still claim to be hip and with it to the early 20 somethings :) with a sophisticated sheen - try it :P....aaah those good days - memory is sweet...have fun but start making your peace with gravity, like now, your mind will catch up eventually :)
Happy Birthday!

Sanju said...

Belated b'day wishes pal. I hope the 20's phase rather slowly for you with lots of good memories to behold....

The Bride said...

Karan said...

Were you thinking of blogging about it while he was talking to you?
