Drowning in Wisdom
ONE THING I've noticed in my short lifespan is that if you wait long enough, not only does everything seem to come back into style in one form or another, but it seems we get tired of conventional and sometimes "bedrock" wisdom and decide it's 180º wrong after long enough, too. Just to shake things up or something. Whatever the reason, it will happen again and again and again. Cholesterol? Evil! Wait ten years...and no, it's not! We were TOTALLY wrong about that! Oh well! Aspirin is great, take it every day to stop heart attacks! Whoa! A new medical report shows that for some, aspirin is the worse thing to take! But eight glasses of water a day, now THAT is very good, and important to do! Wait! No, that's totally wrong! It's too much!
It gets to the point where, gee, you don't really trust the "experts" so much anymore. And people call you "jaded." But the good thing about aging is you tend to care less about that sort of thing. Wait! No you don't!
Actually, yes! You do!
