A Disturbing Notion

In late 1986, I was half my mother's age. Twenty years later, in late 2006, I will be 2/3 my mother's age. If we both live long enough, am I going to catch up to her?

This has spurred, between Alex and I, a highly intellectual discussion of quantum mechanics, including a theory spun off by my genius husband, concerning "Schrodinger's Biscuit." Don't ask.

  2. If it makes you feel any better, I was half my mom's age at 15. And I'm 2/3 of her age right now.

    You aren't alone. ;)

  3. Age is a state of mind :-)

    It's when you look in the mirror and see your mother's ass - that's when you have an issue.

  5. Do you remember the SNL skit he's referencing? A game show MC'd by Jesse Jackson, "The Question Is Moot!"

    We laughed like hyenas.
