You lived a slow life and took hours to do simple tasks that should only take minutes, like slicing fresh oranges.

It took you a long time to leave places. For example, if you had a thought of wanting to eat an orange you knew you had to leave the house and walk to the store because you didn’t have any oranges. Leaving the house would take you about an hour, walking to the store would take you about an hour, shopping for the oranges would take you a few hours, walking home— another hour, slicing the orange took another hour, then eating this orange would take you several hours. At this time, it would be dark, and you would be tired. It would take you a long time to get to bed, and then even longer to fall asleep.

It took you a long time to die; you started when you were born.
