I had to laugh the other afternoon when I study 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 car for instance, if you rarely drive it, care for it, plus consistently have standard 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 really beginning thinking about it, this applies to most areas plus things in life, however 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 afternoon with regards to our Heating plus A/C system. My nice friend and I started talking about our upcoming repair appointment plus realized just how long ago my associate and I had put in the modern system my associate and I have. There didn’t seem to be anything wrong with our Heating plus A/C system plus my associate and I had consistently had routine repair 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 hubby just looked at me like I was crazy plus laughed.
