October 31, 2012

In just ten years, many of today’s older citizens might look in the mirror and ask, “Who is that gorgeous person?” Their reflection would reveal a revitalized body overflowing with enthusiasm, sporting a dazzling smile, wrinkle-free skin, perfect vision, natural hair color, real teeth, and an amazing mind and memory.

I kind of like my grey hair.  By 2022 I should be just about completely grey.  But I’ll sign up for just about any other enhancement.

Go “magical future.”
