There are two interesting things I’ve learned about aging in the last few days:
1. You can use it as an excuse for anything, as in, “you can’t expect me to run that fast, after all I am 65,” and “sorry I forgot your birthday, but sometimes dates are just too much for my 65-year-old brain to handle."
2. On the other hand, if you look at the process of aging as ripening, it doesn’t seem so bad. I'm not getting older, just riper!
I look forward to being sweet and juicy, but am not quite ready to be picked, thank you very much.
