A student once asked me if I wanted to die.
“Pardon me?” I looked up from my desk where I was grading papers to see him standing in front of me.
“Do you want to die?” he repeated.
“Is that a threat or a rhetorical question?”
“I’m just asking because you’re older and you couldn’t possibly have as much fun as you did when you were young like us.”
“Oh, really. (Insert name here), you will be surprised to know that I have more fun now than I ever did when I was your age.”
And that’s the truth. Just check out these photos. . .

Who says middle-aged adults can’t have fun? Girls still just want to have fun, even at our age. At our monthly campouts we get to dress up in costume, and we get to decorate our dollhouses (campers).
What do you do for fun? Teenagers haven’t cornered the market. Fun can be had at all ages.
