What would I do if I were old?

Would I buy a dog so that I could walk it? Would I visit the library every day to read the newspapers? Would I wear a hat? Would I have a strictly regimented schedule, starting at 5am? Would I watch the evening news? Would I read poetry? Would I wish to be young again? Would I worry about the present? The future? Would I bemoan the past?

Would I seek companionship? Would I talk to God more often? Would I long for eternity? Would I be content with a highly localized and seemingly trivial "now"?

Would I do everything I meant to do when I was young, but was too busy using all my youthful strength and energy to be busy?

Would I consider myself gray and brittle and weak and useless, or would I believe that life was just beginning?

What would life be if I were old?

I need a boyfriend.

I need a boyfriend to take me swing dancing on Friday nights. To drive me there, be my partner whenever the need arises, and to be my friend amid a sea of strangers. To drive me home so I won't worry about street life late at night downtown.

I need a boyfriend to take me to all those CCM concerts that end past midnight that my dad wouldn't dream of attending.

I need a boyfriend so I can finally go to Outback Steakhouse and have steak... without paying for it.

I need a boyfriend to keep away all the other guys. Someone who will be my guy without being my guy, and yet will be a public, obvious indication that I am not free for the asking.


Or, what would be even better...

C'mon, little brother: grow up quickly! We've got things to do.
