Old Times

"Getting old....ain't for sissies!"

True words, if there ever were any!  But, there's a price for just about everything, and living way past our expiration dates...ain't cheap.

And I'm not talking just about money.

But that too.

I'm talking about the cost to our egos.......by simply glancing in the mirror from time to time....suddenly becoming aware of how slowly we get out of our cars....well meaning strangers insisting on helping us carry packages.....check out clerks not even asking if we qualify for senior discounts anymore (It's been years since I was asked that question.).....being called "Pops" by the bag boy at the Giant......etc....etc....)

But, there's also an "up side!"  Chiefly, in my opinion, not having to get in horrible traffic....and go to work every morning!"   

Or got to school!  No POP QUIZES!   NO HOMEWORK!    NO REP:ORT CARDS!  NO DETENTION!  NO "BEING LATE" AGAIN!  

Now that I think about it....getting old ain't so bad.
