When I’m 64, 74, 84, etc.

Mrs. Happy and I just finished watching The Notebook on DVD.
Part of the movie features an elderly couple that made my wife cry, because
she thinks we’ll be that much in love when we’re in our 80s and 90s. I hope
she doesn’t
get Alzheimer’s like the lady in the movie, but it’s going to be so fun being
old
with
her.

I don’t normally appreciate Adam Sandler’s humor, but I love this song he
sang in The Wedding Singer:

I wanna make you smile whenever you’re sad
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad
All I wanna do is grow old with you

I’ll get your medicine when your tummy aches
Build you a fire if the furnace breaks
Oh it could be so nice, growing old with you

I’ll miss you
Kiss you
Give you my coat when you are cold
Need you
Feed you
Even let ya hold the remote control

So let me do the dishes in our kitchen
sink
Put you to bed if you’ve had too much to drink
I could be the man who grows old with you
I wanna grow old with you
