    I Hope Everything Will Be Easy

    I've gotten old for sure. I hope whatever function I go to won't last long..gotta get home, well rested. Hope I don't fall on the ice..I'd break  a hip for certain. Hope I get a parking spot REAL close to the store entrance.  It's freezing and man, that wind goes right...

    Jokes Give It Away

    I know I am not nearly as funny as I think I am so learning that my jokes now seem dated and give away my age. I know I am getting older because my not so silly jokes give me away!

    Overheard

    "You can tell she was pretty when she was young.'  Two teenage girls, discussing me, literally behind my back, as I sat five feet away from them!  Another sign you're getting older...people assume you are deaf!  (Full disclosure: It took me a few days to...

    Old Before I'm Old.

    I can now say I've lived in three decades. 1900's, 2000's and 2010's. I'm only 18. I can remember things that happened 15 years ago. I've recently said "when I was that age". I can have a full conversation with someone who is ten years younger than me. I've said, "you'll...
