The Difference Between Young and Old

This came to us in an email and we found it both funny and enlightening.

A C-130 was slowly lumbering along when a young, cocky fighter jet flashed by.

The jet jockey decided to show off.

The fighter pilot told the C-130 pilot, “watch this!” and quickly went into a barrel roll followed by a steep, fast climb.

He then finished his maneuver with a sonic boom as he broke the sound barrier. The fighter pilot asked the C-130 pilot what he thought of that?

The C-130 pilot said, “That was impressive, but watch this!”

The C-130 droned along for about 5 minutes and then the C-130 pilot came back on the radio and said, “What did you think of that?”

Puzzled, the fighter pilot asked, “What the heck did you do?”

The C-130 pilot chuckled. “I stood up, stretched my legs, walked to the back, used the bathroom, and then got a cup of coffee and a cinnamon roll.”

When you are young and foolish – speed and flash may seem a good thing.

When you get older and smarter – comfort and dull is not such a bad thing.

Older folks understand this – it’s called S.O.S. – Slower, Older and Smarter.
