Fountain of youth immediately reminds me of Twilight, Anne Rice, and Ian Somerhalder. Basically, vampires. And the philosopher’s stone.
But the answer is simple. No, I would not drink the water. I don’t want to stay young and party every day. I want to go to an age where I’ll start enjoying green tea and cashew nuts. And brown bread. Ugh.
I don’t want my friends to grow older, I don’t want to watch everyone I love die in front of me. I could attend hundreds of birthdays, but if I was forever young, I’d have to cry at a thousand funerals.
So, no. Forever young would be a risk at best.
Grow older, wiser and more experienced. Every day.
