In a restaurant, I actually just heard a woman ask her phone, "How long is the Mary Poppins movie?"
The phone replied, "The Mary Poppins movie is one hundred thirty minutes long."
She blurted out to her boyfriend or husband, "Oh my god, that's over three hours!"
Yeah, math is not my favorite subject, but now that I have a calculator in my pocket almost all of the time... 2019 + 81 = 2100. The year 3000 - current year 2019 = 981 years. Those damn pesky details. I am 99% positive I will not live to see 3000, and I'd prefer not so see 2100. I do remember being with my siblings when we were children, fascinated by the fact that we'd likely be alive in the year 2000. This must have been in the mid 1960s. It seemed so far away then. And now here it is, 19 years past 2000, and we're all (my siblings) still alive, and worse yet, we're old!
