According to some articles I just read about male life expectancy in the United States, I can expect to live to about 75. Which means I'm about 83% of the way there.

Well, heck.

Then again, that length of time ago, I was just past 50 -- and that seems a long time ago. I had just changed jobs, leaving a company that doesn't even exist now. I hadn't even thought of learning French, or starting to bake, or any of that. My daughter was 5. That's forever ago.

And you keep hearing that people living till 85 or 90 is becoming more common.

The older I get, the more that makes sense to me.
