Nothing, so far. The closest I come is the bevy of little physical pains that show up when I try to do some of the same stuff I used to do. But even those don't make me feel "old". They just remind me that certain parts are wearing out, but there's no perception of "old" that accompanies it. In my mind, I'm still the same me...

...well, sort of. I suppose I'm less inclined to assume the best of Others™, onna counta they've taught me otherwise. But I'm not sure that has anything to do with "old". There are plenty of things that make me feel disappointed, pissed, fed up with the stupidity of certain fellow humanoids...but that stuff has been going on for as long as I can remember.

People who are unable to acknowledge reality, and imagine they have a mandate to impose that worldview on others.

After working twenty+ years in the prison system, I'm beyond familiar with it (both the inmate and managerial versions). But I was never able to decide whether to laugh, cry, get angry or throw up whenever I encountered it.

I still can't.

Fifty years ago, it was obvious that there was something sadly wrong with people like that. By now, it's become the new normal.

Oh brave new world !

I looked at this earlier and probably then would have mentioned my lower back. The thread though really came to the true point -- perspective. We're getting old when the new is new and our views are old. I guess that can happen at various points. We're slower to notice though that we aren't the sought after demographic.

P.S. Yak...2 decades working in the prison system...I can see where his unbounded optimism comes from.

Morning aches and pains and humans getting more and morer stupiderer. I thought I was a juggernaut until I got a hernia. That was a real punch in the gut.

Realizing that I now have 4 or 5 doctors, when 1 used to be just fine!! My friends and I start talking about things that happened 50 or 60 years ago; and realize we lived it!! Any day where I wake up, feel no dirt in my face, check the obituary page & not see my name or picture...is going to be a good day!!!!

Getting used to reaching for my reading glasses when I want to read something.

And getting used to being annoyed that I've left them in another room.

Yes! Reading glasses! My eyes just went kaput this year. I'm sure it's from 20 years of computers and programming but I used to be able to read in the dark and from 6 inches from my face. No more. I still have 20/20 vision but dang...

An elderly gentleman was telling his friend about a new restaurant
he and his wife recently visited.

"The food and service were great!" he said.

His friend asked, "What's the name of the place?"

"Gee, I don't remember," he said, "What do you call the long
stemmed flower people give on special occasions?"

"You mean a rose?" asked his friend.

"That's it!" he exclaimed and turning to his wife, asked,
"Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to the other day?"

Very Happy

Get used to it.

I was married to my first wife at 19, and divorced at 21.

What a fiasco!

No

Top of the morning to you, Brewdude!

Sorry I have been gone so long. I have been back in Afghanistan for about five months now, three more to go. The first several months here I had to use an Afghan internet service provider at the site, and somehow Brothers of Briar was listed as an offensive website. I think it has something to do with Yak's opinions...

I hope to chat with you all more often, friends!

Cheers!
Sean

- fact, that many pipe tobaccos (Dunhill, St. Bruno, plenty of others) are not what they used to be, say, 50 or even 40 years ago Sad
