    Looks like I have passed my life expectancy

      I was tempted to say, “UH, OH,” but doesn’t it give you an extension for being 65 and Older. It is the one I am using. Plus we both know WE are above the average in so many other ways, why not this one?

      Can’t that happen posthumously? Is that a word?

    Still too close for comfort. But it’s just an average, so half of everyone lives longer, right?

      I too am a glass half full of reality.

    I’m a person, not a statistic. So personally I don’t much care. However what does this statistic imply for the planet — population increase, food and water shortages, increasing climate change, etc. Those are the issues that cry out for our collective attention and action.

      The Spectator, a British magazine, parodied the crying over the success of living too long. Those problems? We will figure them out says they. I toast a glass half full. May it always be reality but without ignoring the angst.
