The Feeling of 6 Years

by F.

I have one older sibling. When I was one year old, the difference between our ages was 600% of how long I’d lived. Pretty huge difference. When I was 24, it was 25%, which still seemed pretty big. Now I’m almost 40 and it’s 15%, and that doesn’t seem so big. When we’re 80, it’ll be 7.5%.
