27 years old

Yesterday I was talking to some friends about John Lennon and we came around to talking about how young the Beatles actually were, and I realized that Lennon was 27 years old when he wrote "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "I Am the Walrus."  Now I am listening to "I Am the Walrus," and I am realizing that the man I am listening to singing on this recording, that I have been listening to for years and years and years, is my age

Sigh.  I've wasted my life.
