I don't feel old yet. In fact, sometimes I think the very core of who we are is very similar throughout the years. There are parts of me that feel like the same person I was in high school. I'm not so sure that is a good thing, but that's how it seems. But, I guess I'm seen as older than I think I feel.....
A few weeks ago I had some help here cleaning the house. When I came down the hardwood steps, the woman was cleaning the hardwood floor at the bottom. She said with alarm, "Be careful! The floor is wet! I always worry when old people walk on a wet floor!" Boy, did that one hit me. She thought I was old! I thought we were peers! Wow.
Then, a few days ago I had my glasses off to read something. I went to move on to the next task and couldn't find my glasses. I looked all around where I was sitting without success. So, I decided to walk into the bathroom and put my contacts in. When I looked in the mirror, there were my glasses - on top of my head!!
Maybe the cleaning lady was right.
