it irks me every time i hear someone ask an old person "what's your secret to long life?"
i'd imagine that an elderly person would find this patronizing, as - when spoken by a smiling, on-air personality - seems to roughly translate into: "how come you're not dead yet?"
i hope that i live long enough to be asked what my secret of long life is...
to which i'd reply: "avoiding people like you... unngh..."
...and then promptly die.
