the moment for a change

I had to laugh the other morning when I read a sign at the local gift shop.

It read, “In pet years, I have only had one”.

It had a mug of budweiser on the sign plus I thought that was quite clever. This refers to the fact that people say that for every one year, a pet lives seven. I am not sure how anyone came up with this equation but it seems to be a saying that has been around as long as I can remember. This got me thinking about how things age in general. Take your motorcar for instance, if you rarely drive it, care for it, plus regularly have regular check ups, it is not going to age as hastily as someone who uses theirs more frequently or doesn’t care for it. Would you say that some cars “age” more hastily than others. If you genuinely start thinking about it, this applies to most areas plus things in life, but even our own bodies “age” more hastily if not taken care of properly. The funny thing is, this discussion came up at my house the other morning with regards to our Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system, my nice friend and I started talking about our upcoming maintenance appointment plus realized just how long ago my friend and I had put in the up-to-date system my friend and I have. There didn’t seem to be anything wrong with our Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system plus my friend and I had regularly had routine maintenance done. In reality it was over twenty years old but still worked like a champ. It was then that I thought about the sign in the gift shop. I said “in pet years, the system is only three years old”. My husband just looked at me like I was silly plus laughed.
