Hey Bangor, If You Could Choose To Stay An Age, What Would It Be?
We got talking yesterday morning, and we were reminiscing about our pasts a bit, and the question came up... If you could choose any age to stay for the rest of your life, past or present, what would you choose?
JStew: Questions like this are always kinda tough. Mostly because, my question is always the same... Do I get to go back to that age armed with the life experience I have now, or do I have to just unknowingly re-live that time period? Because hindsight and nostalgia always put a spin on everything. Anyway... I digress. So, my mid-twenties were a great time that I would gladly re-live and stay there. Or the year I got married, in my early 30's. On the other hand, if I could stay the age I am right now, I'd have my lovely bride and my dog. With just those two things, I have everything I could ever want.
Cori: I agree, this one's a tricky questions for me, as I am sure it is for most. I loved being in my mid-late 20's. I was in the best of health, was at the beginning of an upward climb career wise, and probably felt, overall, the best about most aspects of my life. But my kids had yet to be born. And if I'm being honest, I'd rather be 40--and have my body and heart been beat up and worn, just so I could spend the rest of my life with them. I couldn't imagine not having them around. Life was definitely more "fun" and "carefree" back then, but now--hands down--its way more fulfilling.
A lot of the answers were pretty surprising. And no one chose staying the semi-famous high school quarterback moment, so often seen in movies. Let's check them out:
