Life Expectancy

The other day Progeny the Elder asked me, out of the blue, "Dad, how old were your parents when their parents died?"

"Well, my dad was about 35 and 43 when his parents died and my mom was about 45 and 49 when her parents died."

Silence for a minute.

"How old will I be when you die?"

"I'm not sure. A lot older than you are now."

"Will the cancer you had affect when you die?"

"Hmm. I'm not sure but I don't think so."


When looking for an image to go with this post I came across this life expectancy calculator. It said I'm going to live to the age of 87.23 years. That means I'll die at exactly 8:48pm on August 16, 2047.

Progeny the Elder will be 43.
