Adventures in getting older.Posted Thursday, July 15, 2010, at 6:11 PM
Well today was interesting, I had a 8:00 am dental appointment. Got a filling done, and walked around half the day talking like Sylvester Stallone in Rocky... I ran up the stairs several times yelling "adrianne" just because it felt authentic..
The next doc appointment was a eye exam and I have been putting off for three years, bifocals. So I left 300.00 poorer and with my eyes dialated and a pair of old fart darkening lenses over my old glasses.
I told the doctor, if I had my eyes looking like I had a drug trip I shoulda at least got a great feeling off of it.
Instead, alas I got the old fart glasses..
Most of the time, I am ok with the whole getting older thing and all the interesting things that are happening on a year to year basis.
But going home today I was humming the Rolling Stones song "what a drag it is Getting Old".
Do you have some interesting stories from getting older that you have noticed?
