No one teaches classes on, “Growing Old!” No one made a documentary film on the loud rock and roll music making you hard of hearing! Bet, you thought when old folks complained about their aches and pains, you rolled your eyes and thought, “BORING!” Yes, you did! Now, thinking about it, don’t you feel ashamed of yourself?
Retirement was going to be the best years of your life! Now you travel to the doctors! Gee, not at all what I had planned on! Shopping is still fun as long as they have the electric buggies. Be careful not to give yourself a whiplash when stopping. These little buggies can stop on a dime. Try not to back up, they make that terrible sound when you do.
Walking is good for you and you get a lot of that. You walk into a room to get something and the mind is a total blank! You go back and when you sit down you remember what you needed from that room. However, the phone rings and the whole thought process goes down!
These computers are great! However, ask your grandkids the questions. Your children will say, “I told you how to do that yesterday!” You’ve got S.C.A.D. “SENIOR CITIZENS ATTENTION DISORDER!” Either, I can’t hear or I’m just not lessening! Have a lot on my mind with where I put things and why did I put them there!
P.S. Weather and joints get married when you become a senior citizen!
