observations on life

Is it just me?

I think that when we are old, or old enough, we should get to decide what we do, rather than doing what everybody else wants us to do.  Maybe that’s selfish.  Maybe it’s something we are owed after 60 or 70 years of doing what others want instead of what we want.  Maybe there are still enough things, finally, that we have to do that we don’t want to do, like mow the lawn or do the laundry or scrub the toilets, chore after chore after chore, that life requires of us, that we should get to decide all the other stuff for ourselves.  Is that wrong?
