When Are You Old?
There is an old saying that goes something, like, "You're only as old as you feel."
Well, the other night I met up with some friends I used to work with a few years back.
We went to a local establishment. As I walked through the doors, after being carded, I took note of the average age of those around me.
I saw some folks that I guessed to be about my age (50-plus), but for the most part I was surrounded by young adults, kids as I like to call them, and they looked like they couldn't be much older than my son.
I asked one young man, who I honestly thought was a high school friend of my son's, how old he was; he said 23.
I sat back and at that moment I felt old. Now keep in mind I don't feel old and I don't think I look old (most days), but at that moment I felt out of place and certainly wasn't having any fun.
Now, to top it of,f as I was leaving, about four or five young (twenty-somethings) came walking in and the bouncer didn't even card them.
I'm old and had to show my ID and they are less than half my age and just walked right in.
I guess it's time for a cane or walker and bingo on Friday nights with my old friend Mark Wilson.
