Better as Time Flies

What gets better with age?

Well for me, it has been figuring people out.  I am not saying I am still all that great at it.  There are people I cannot figure out because they do not want to be figured out.  Does that make sense? I can read people better than I used to.  I think this is because I have seen more of the world and how people act.  Joining the military opened my eyes.  I was rather naive.  I admit it.  I remember doing evening duties and chores before bed during boot camp and listening to my fellow recruits talk about their personal lives and being amazed that they would discuss stuff that was so private.  Some of them were likely amused at my reactions.  Then again, I still think that private things should be kept private.  I really do not want to know what you and your significant other do in the bedroom.  Reading people comes with a price, though.  I sometimes wish that I was still naive.  The world seemed a lot better and I was more optimistic back then.
