“Health experts are now concerned that this bad economy may be causing Americans to gain weight. They call it recession pounds. You put on recession pounds during economic hardship. So guys, if your wife or girlfriend says, ‘Do these pants make me look like we’re in a recession?’ be careful what you say.” —Jay Leno
The summer after college graduation, I was living at home, fishing in the daytime, spending nights with my friends?-generally just hanging out. One afternoon my grandfather, who never went to college, stopped by.
Concerned with how I was spending my time, he asked about my future plans. I told him I was in no hurry to tie myself down to a career.
“Well,” he replied, “you better start thinking about it. You’ll be thirty before you know it.”
“But I’m closer to twenty than to thirty,” I protested. “I won’t be thirty for eight more years.”
“I see,” he said, smiling. “And when will you be twenty again?”
