It's just that, well, er, uhh......why the heck would I want to go back to being 25 years old.....and have 25 years to go until retirement again!!! YUCK!!! NO WAY!!! I'll gladly stick with being 51 and FIRE'd!!!

BTW, Happy Birthday! Relish it! And just think......you only have roughly that many more years to go before you can pull the plug! (That would make a nice Hallmark greeting card wouldn't it?!)
Agreed!

I'll turn 58 in a few weeks, and aside from a few more aches and pains and having to wear reading glasses, you couldn't pay me to be 25 again.

Stupid hormones and stress responses, worrying about reactions to everything I did or said...; good riddance.

I retired at 54 and some time before that I dragged my ego into the alley and stomped it flat.

The Fountain of Youth is dull as paint
Methuselah is my patron saint
I've never been so comfortable before
Oh I'm so glad that I'm not young anymore
