So, you’re old. Avoiding mirrors did not freeze time. You aged anyway. You know you have because…
You are much older than your doctor. When he suggested you take Lipitor for your cholesterol, you asked him, “Do you take it?” He said, “No. But my father does.”
You were struggling to carry your beach paraphernalia back to your car. A sudden storm had blown up. You were struggling against the wind, lugging beach bag, chair, and sun hat. A car slows. A good samaritan? “Hey! You old grandmaaaaw.” The car accelerates past.
You’re at the Farmer’s Market. Your cart and a man’s cart bump. He winks and says he’s got some moves to show you. He is at least 80. Sigh.
You were at a party when a friend giggles, “Which would you rather? Get naked from the waist up or the waist down.” (And no. No one had to put their keys in a basket in this party.) Your other friend offers, “Well, if you want to see my boobs, it would have to be from the waist down.” Yes.
