To Hear Kids Tell It, Getting Older Is A Real Pain

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Remember being a kid? You ever think about getting old? Like, maybe even turning 40? Well, a British film director recently ran across a book called "Happy Birthday, You Old Wreck." The premise - children imagine what it feels like to be 40. And their predictions - not pretty. Your legs begin to ache and you feel you'll collapse, writes 8-year-old Patrick. One other kid just wrote I'll die soon. Thanks. This is great, given the particular birthday I just celebrated. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
