Since Six Flags is in far-off New Jersey, we actually left New York the day before our afternoon there and spent the night at E.S.’s parents’ house, which is about half an hour away from the park. After dinner, E.S.’s parents were talking about how aging affects memory. We had the following exchange:
E.S.’s father: “As you get older, the facts start to drop away but the wisdom you’ve learned from them stays with you.”
Me: “What if you never had any wisdom, only facts?”
E.S.’s mother: “Then you’re doomed.”
ahh but when i read this i had so much more to say but the word DOOMED just sticks out at me.
oh nice one 🙂
Of course to a Scot, the word “doomed” is always said in the voice of “Fraser from Dad’s Army” – not sure if that crossed the pond.
Savvy chick your ma-in-law.
