Billy the Sage

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today's contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Billy

Subject: Our Sage

So you've been 26 for a couple of weeks now. How does it feel? The arthritis kick in yet?”

It's much like being 25, only older. The arthritis is painful. It takes me 45 minutes to get up in the morning.”


No! I'm 26, not 56. I get up fine in the morning, my hair's not falling out or going gray, and I can actually remember everything that happens during the day.”

Now you're just teasing me.”

Would I do that?”


You're right. You young ones have it so easy. Back in my day..” Billy pretends to drift off and stares into space.

Ann and Frank are turning 24 next week, they're getting up there too!”

Wow, a good two dozen years. You can measure your age just like you measure eggs.”

Are you implying I'm an omelet?”

Hmm, what else can I compare your age to?”

No fair. Your age is a prime number, hard to compare to anything.”

That's why we just make fun of him because he's old.”

The ancient one.”

Ancient one? That makes me sound like a wise sage. Ooommmmm.”

Oh wise Billy the Sage. Tell me where to eat dinner tonight.”

The path lined with pepperoni pizza is the path to happiness.”

I can live with that advice.” Tabitha says, picking up the phone.

26 doesn't sound half bad. every since i turned 24 i've been worried about this whole "mid-20s" business.

however, it seems fine.

24's not that bad. It's still the younger side of 20s. Once you hit 25, you're suddenly closer to third than twenty. Closer to your 10 year high school reunion than prom. Insurance rates go down(if you drive) and you realize that it's the last perk of age, and it's all down hill from here.(unless you want to be president, then you need 10 more years)

At 26, wise we are yes. Much wisdom to give. <----says like Yoda. See like fine wine we get better with age, and lower insurance premiums, until some kid 25 & under rear ends us and messes everything up. j/k
