Really young and really old people have a lot in common!!

Observation started with this post (http://mindfuldigressions.com/2015/03/12/how-often-do-you-fart/) by one of my favorite bloggers.  After complaining of stomach pains, and taking a lot of icky meds, his doctor asked him how often he farted, which prompted the following thoughts about the many similarities between babies and old people.

Their bowel movements are often observed and noted.  They’re either constipated of have the runs.  Neither of these conditions is very much fun.

A corollary to the above is that they pass gas pretty often.  That makes babies smile, and maybe old farts, too!

They wear diapers

They frequently visit doctors, even if they aren’t sick.

As people age, they often take on the characteristics of dependent children.

They sleep all day but are up all night.

They leave this world the same way they came into it: toothless, hairless and wrinkled

Prefer to take vitamins (and/or fiber) in the form of gummies.

Always want what they can’t have or is not good for them

  1. Pleased to be referred to as one of your favorite bloggers, as well as to serve as the inspiration for this post. Although I have to tell you that envisioning my “golden years” wearing diapers, farting a lot, and being toothless, hairless, and wrinkled doesn’t sound all that appealing to me.
