Question of the Week #12

QuestionIf you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the body or the mind of a 30-year-old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want?

The mind, without even hesitating to think about it. I’m not saying that I won’t care or complain when my body really starts to give out. I mean, I already complain about my knees popping and my right shoulder getting sore every time it gets ready to rain all because I dislocated it one time 15 years ago. As long as my mind doesn’t get crazy(er than it already is), I won’t complain. I at least want to maintain my sarcasm and quick wit. That way I can at least poke fun at myself for my ailing body and get a laugh from whoever is in the room.

Which would you want? Let me know in the comments.

*The Question of the Week can be found in The Book of Questions by Gregory Stock, Ph.D.

  1. Mind. Neither my mind nor my body are that great, but I’ve seen the affects of Alzheimer’s, etc., and I’d much prefer to retain my mental capacity at 30.
    How’d you dislocate the shoulder?
