I came across that nasty phrase "productive years" today. Your "productive years" are when you are between the ages of x and y (I don't want to offend people who fall outside of whatever arbitrary range I would come up with, so fill those numbers in yourself) when you are productive and valuable to society.

The phrase temporarily provokes anxiety because it makes you ask yourself, well, what am I producing, what do I have to show for myself, but then you remember drinking tea and reading and eating mangoes is enough for you, and society can fend for itself.
