Three score and ten.


Three score and ten should have been the title of my last post. A score is actually 20 years. So six score and ten would make me 130 years old. Thanks to Anne Cumming for pointing this out to me. At the time I wrote this (late last evening) I was tired and distracted but thinking of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address when he spoke: “Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent … ” That would have been 87 years for him. If I make 87, then I can also proclaim here that “four score and seven years ago I came into this world.”

For now, I’ll leave it at three score and ten. For now, that’s plenty old enough for me. I just wish I didn’t have to pee so often at night. Sheesh.
