I must say that, having spent the last several years looking after the aging parents, I have come to strongly disapprove of this whole aging thing. I have watched as, bit by bit, various parts of their bodies have quit functioning until they both must now be wheeled about the house in chairs and assisted with all manner of tasks they once found easy.

Each time I perform one or another of these tasks, I have a vision of a LOLcat saying "Ur doin it wrong" pop into my head. Now, because he's unable to eat solid foods and has increasing difficulty getting liquids down, my dad will probably have to get a feeding tube. Then I'll have to learn how to operate it. Another task to bring the LOLcat to mind!

I have no intention of getting that old. I've decided that, as soon as I can no longer devour solid food, I'm going out to find a mountain lion to devour me. Though with my luck the lion won't like the way I go about it, and somebody will end up getting a photo of the event and posting it on I Can Has Cheezbuger? with the caption "Ur doin it wrong!"
