Time Flies At A Standstill



Why does time seem to move so slow as a kid but move so quickly as an adult?

Maybe it’s like going to a new place for the first time: it feels like forever to get there, but the return trip goes by a lot faster.

For kids most things are new experiences and exciting.

“Are we there yet?”

For adults many things are the same and routine.

“Just a little further.”


I guess Time is similar to a rollercoaster ride: it starts slow, but once you start going over the hill it speeds up considerably.

… then it’s all white knuckles and screaming.


note: some people white knuckle it and scream through the slow part too.

double note: screaming in the line-up is premature.

triple note: if you believe in reincarnation, then you’re just going to go back and stand in line again.
