Bonus Time

I have developed a concept of bonus time that would theoretically let me get away with murder once I reach a certain age. Call it a reward for behavior modification in my youth.

The theory states that we are all going to make it to 72. I know…some of us don’t but let’s just say this is the expected life span. Anything more is bonus time and added new vices will likely not kill you directly.

So in bonus time….have a smoke… eat three eggs with sausage. Spend some money you’ve been saving. Go see a stripper. Take that cruise to Greece. What ever you’ve wanted to do but were afraid to do because of health, money,

I proposed this theory when I was a much younger man in my late 20’s and early 30’s. Being a man of many vices I decided to give up most and start exercising.

Bonus time will allow me to indulge full speed ahead in the vices of my youth until I croak.

I can see now some flaws in my theory as I have aged….like I would be a fat wheezy tick with explosive blood pressure and tobacco breath.

Maybe I should rethink this.

It was all sounding good until you got to the fat, wheezy tick part. And the tobacco breath. I hate that! Of course, you could remedy the bad breath with a mint.

Oh, I don't know - my FIL seems to be living that life right now, and he is now well into his 70s!

I already live like that, is that a bad thing?
