”Aren’t you excited that our lives are just beginning?” You ask. ”Like, we have another 60 years and so much is going to happen.”
I turn to you with slight disbelief in my eyes. Do we have 60 years? I guess we might. ”Yes. Yes, I am”, I respond. I feel that you take my disbelief as confusement, like I didn’t understand what you said. I clarify; ”I’m mostly excited, yeah.”
