22 and 59

“When I am 22, how old will you be?”
After some complicated math, we determined that I will be 59 when my son is 22.
“Oh good, that means I will be old enough to take care of myself before you die.”  
His twin sister had to chime in. “That will never happen.”
I didn’t want to ask if she doubts that I will live that long or that her brother will ever be able to take care of himself.
