You Know You Are Getting Old When….

As the years have passed, I don’t feel older. Sure I have the “normal” amount of stiffness in the morning and the usual aches and pains. And I know I have an AARP card but I guess I convince myself that I just don’t look old.

Last night my wife and I went out to eat and then to the movies. It had been a while since I had been to the movies on a week night but I was a little surprised at the price of the tickets, they were less that I though. I later realized that I had been given the “senior” discount. The sad part is that I don’t “qualify” for two more years.

I was telling this story at work today and one of co-workers quipped that the I may look old the kid selling tickets but I could probably out run him.

Ran 5 miles today. It had warmed up to about 50 but the wind was gusting from the southwest and I alternated between hot and cold.
