Children in China eating Irish takeout

JODY CORCORAN

It depends on when in the future. Let us say in five years, 10 years and 50 years. In the long run we are all dead, today or in 50 years.

In 50 years I will be 93. I hope to be dead by then. That said, if I make it to 93, I may want to make it to 94.

The good news is I won't care what happens any more. That will be the concern of my grandchildren, if they live here, which I expect they will not. They will be in China, ordering an Irish takeaway.
