I’ve had a lot of people tell me that they’re happy to be older. This has never sat right with me. Happy to be older? Whaaat? I know there’s the getting wiser thing. But then there’s that loss of memory thing. So what good is it being wiser if you can’t remember your wisdom?
I’ve mentioned this a lot of times. There’s that famous phrase: age is just a number. Again. Whaaat? I feel like I’m 70 and I’m only in the upper 50’s. Enough said.
“He/she looks good for her age” is a proclamation that makes me roll my eyes. It makes me think that the rest of us look ancient. Thanks.
What have we learned here? Aging sucks. Though, getting close to the “60” numeral I am comforted by the saying “60 is the new 50.” Kidding.
