I WAS THINKING…
about the teenage girls I saw sitting in the grass at the park. It brought back memories when I would sit cross legged. It was such a natural thing to do. Little did I realize that the day would come when sitting cross-legged would be a “remember when” thing. That’s okay. I’ll just sit in a chair and cross my legs or ankles. And I won’t need to embarrass myself trying to get-up gracefully.
YOU KNOW YOU’RE GETTING OLD WHEN…
you and your teeth sleep separate.
your bones are getting softer and your arteries are getting harder.
you do dumb stuff, only slower.
you find what looks like a really old penny and see it’s the year you were born.
