Joke of the Week: Aging Gracefully


It's Monday, which means it's time for your weekly dose of locavore levity: the Joke of the Week! This week's joke comes from Burlington's Lindsey Haddad. Take it away, Lindsey…

We need to stop saying 30 is the new 20. If that were literally true, that’d be like Daylight Saving Time for getting older. And I would much rather have that extra hour of sleep over another 10 years of worrying about my credit score.

About That Joke
Says Haddad: I heard that phrase so many times in the six months before I turned 30. Every time I heard it, I just kept imagining that on my birthday I'd suddenly transform into 20-year-old Lindsey. I don't think anyone ever names "my 20-year-old self" as what they want to be when they grow up.
