2014.11.26 AD - Getting older VS getting old.

Good morning. This is Arashi’s Ohno Satoshi.
Here’s today’s thought of the day; come on!

"You can’t help getting older, but you don’t have to get old."[1]

[BGM ‘Imaging Crazy’]

Ah, certainly. This is a quote by American comedian George Burns-san. Burns-san apparently lived to be 100 years old!

This was sent in by listener Chako-san from Saitama…

[BGM 'Happy Birthday' by Stevie Wonder]

Uwah, here it comes! Cake? Man, I’m happy! A cake just came in!

I’m celebrating my birthday. Right, I’m blowing out the candles. Thank you!(cheers)

Thank you very much, seriously! Such love. I’m 34 years old. How fast, huh? Man, but being 34… What should I do? But well, it feels like it’s a wonderful to become 34.

Like personally, well, I’d like to do enjoyable things. Yeah. Interesting things. New things. I’d like to try that. Mm. So I don’t know what form those will take, but something, somehow… I’d like that to happen this year.

Mm. Even if it’s just to me personally, I’d like to achieve something. Yeah. Well, that’s right, I’ve received messages from lots of people. It’s kinda, for my birthday… I won’t read them all out. Well, I’ll read the names at least, in any case. I’ve received one from Minami-chan. Thank you very much for the birthday message! And then… Rihosshi-san, and Emi-chan, Nana-san, Nacchi-san… there’s still a whole lot. Man, thank you very much! I’ll read them at my own leisure.

Amongst that, the other day, I opened up for submissions to men of the same age as me. Well, we’ve received lots of messages for that too. I can’t read them all either, but well, I’ll just read one.

From a banker who’s my age, ahh:
"I’m always listening to Ohno-kun’s radio show while doing the ironing before I go to work."

(That’s amazing! Thank you for your hard work so early in the morning!)

"Nothing’s different from when I was still young and in my twenties, I thought, but honestly, I have no idea what young kids are talking about these days. (laughs) Speaking of which, the one who’s aiming to become the acting section manager is an Ohno-kun-like young old man. (laughs)He’s like Satou Koichi-san, talks like he’s big stuff but he also talks like the Akuma guy in 'Shinigami-kun'.”

(Oh, Suda-kun, right?)

"He’s my mutual enemy right now. There’ll still be old guys like this when we’re about 45 years old, and I’m writing this message with all my might, so please read it!"

I’ve read it!

Man, that’s amazing? A banker? That’s amazing. I rarely… well, sure, in'Shinigami-kun' there were a lot of young co-stars - there were many co-stars who were younger than me, but the one playing Akuma, Suda-kun? I often talked to him, but he feels older than me.

Probably the banker-san who’s my age is doing things a little too reliably? Mm. I mean, I could never do the ironing in the morning. It’d probably be like,"Are you okay today??" That’s how it’d turn out. Mm.

But well, I’m glad. I mean, he listens to my radio show every day.

But well, it’s kinda… In that case… I’d kinda like to have a drinking party with a bunch of guys my age. (laughs) Seriously. It’d be fun, right? We’d definitely not be using formal speech since we’d be the same age. It’d be casual talk.

Right, so as a 34-year-old, I’d like to be doing my best from now onwards, too!

That’s all; this was Ohno Satoshi!
