It seems to happen to me more and more lately. Maybe it is because I am trying to stuff too much into too few hours or maybe time is flying by faster than it used to or just maybe I am running slower than I used to. Now that we know that neutrinos can travel faster than the speed of light (which I told you about on an older blog), why can’t time speed up and slow down. Einstein said it could, and who am I to argue with him. OK, so he said it depends on something other than a person’s age to affect the speed of time. I say it is directly influenced by a person’s age. You see, when you are real young, your mind works real fast and therefore time seems to go slow. When you get old your mind slows down and thus time appears to go so much faster. I am not saying that I am old, but everyone else is and with this bout of trying to get my blood pressure under control (I am winning that battle, I think) I am starting to believe them. Heck, I have already lived almost nine years longer than my Dad did. But, maybe time moved slower back in his day.
Speaking of high blood pressure, I have had problems with it for quite a few years. I think it was 20 or 25 years ago, I had a dentist appointment and the dentist had just purchases a sphygmomanometer that he was going to take home for his family’s use. He wanted to try it out, so I volunteered. My blood pressure was 220 over 120. He thought that the unit was defective, but told me to see a doctor. Well, I didn’t have a doctor, but looked one up in the yellow pages and called and told him what I thought my BP was. Wow, that worked, got an appointment that same day, and yes, it was that high and I have no idea how many years it had been like that. I told him it was my way of checking for aneurisms!! He didn’t think that was funny.
Hey, you all have a great day now and we will be heading off to the (you guessed it) flea market.
