The Future

by Tom Swift

So can you see yourself onstage doing stand-up in your seventies and eighties?

To make decisions about your 78-year-old self at 48 is a stupid exercise. It’s like saying, ‘What am I going to when I’m a fish in my next life?’ I don’t f—ing know! I’m not that guy yet. I mean, I have days now where if I sleep weirdly and my neck hurts the next morning, I’m ready to quit everything.
