Curiously Backwards

"You're just the romantic age," she continued--"fifty. Twenty-five is too worldly-wise; thirty is apt to be pale from overwork; forty is the age of long stories that take a whole cigar to tell; sixty is--oh, sixty is too near seventy; but fifty is the mellow age. I love fifty."
-The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald








Funny short story. Give it a read.


Always,

I read that last month. Actually, I read the graphic novel on the left. I absolutely adored it. Funny, yes, but also heartbreaking. So wonderful.
