This Is What I Want At 80

Sunday, at Jessie and Evan’s wedding in Milwaukee, my folks took a turn on the dance floor. My dad is 80. My mom is younger – that’s all I’m authorized to say.

I don’t think they act their age. They’re active. They have fun. They dance. It’s not what I expected 80 would be.

This is not high quality video. It was captured on my cellphone, a particularly awful video recorder. Still, I wanted to show you what I want to be doing when I turn 80.

My folks are a great couple… even after 59 years together. They live a life worth aiming for.
