Profound Thoughts

This morning as I was washing the dishes I was supposed to do last night, I thought about my monumental birthday tomorrow and I was pondering the words of the great philosopher Steve Miller:

Time keeps on slippin' slippin' slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin' slippin' slippin'
Into the future

This is perhaps exceeds the profundity of his exposition on self-realisation:

I'm a picker, I'm a grinner, I'm a lover and I'm a sinner
Playing my music in the sun
I'm a joker, I'm a smoker, I'm a midnight toker
I sure don't want to hurt no one

This is perhaps because I gave up smoking at the age of eight and I've never been a toker, at midnight or otherwise.

I did take on one last bit of Millerian philosophy before I finished the dishes:

My grandpa, he's 95
And he keeps on dancin'
He's still alive

My grandma, she's 92
She loves to dance
And sing some, too

I don't know
But I've been told
If you keep on dancing
You'll never grow old

During the next 40 years, I'm going to do the best I can to keep dancing.
