Umm, cough, TMI?What exactly were you doing to entertain yourself pre covid? I can't say there's anything I can't do now that I could do before the virus struck.....apart from kiss the mother in laws female carer who has a nice bum.
Similar thing happening to me. Collected music albums hoping I would find time to listen to classical in my old age. Followed by cassettes, open reel tapes, CDs, Mp3, FLAC, u name it. Then added Movies in large quantities almost impossible to store. DVDs and now I realise the time will never come.Umm, cough, TMI?
But it's odd that the young, who have vast great spans of years ahead of them, are so easily bored. While those of us embarking on our 7th decade of life, who can see our own inevitable death heaving up over a distant horizon, feel we never have enough time for all we want to do.
I was looking at my Steam library the other day, thinking how many games I own that I have never played, and how many more I have only played far less than I want to, and it occurred to me that I probably don't have enough years left to do all I want with the games I already own, let alone any more I may buy. I started playing wargames fifty years ago, with Avalon Hill's WW1 monsterpiece 1914. And, Lord, but that half century has gone by so quickly!
I wish I could think of something profound with which to conclude this little digression, but I've got nothing. Life is, and then it isn't. JFK, MLK, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Mama Cass, and Jimi Hendrix all died too young. And wicked old monsters like Henry Kissinger and George Soros seem to live forever.
