Thoughts on Aging

Vito Corleone: I like to drink wine more than I used to.wine

Michael: It’s good for ya, Pop.

Vito Corleone: Anyway I’m drinkin’ more.

The Godfather

 

There should be a law that say that when you get grey hair and wrinkles, you should never, EVER find you have a zit.

Older eyes make life more interesting. For example, I saw a sign for “Guest of the week,” but at first glance thought it said “Ghost of the week.” I like my version better.

I’ve met important people and very important people. But I’ve never met those ultra-important people who get to make left turns from the middle lane, cut in front of others, or ignore stop signs.

I’m grateful that we have drugs to take care of the problems of aging so we can function at our best. However, with everyone using generics, it’s hard to keep track when this month’s refill for the oblong yellow pill is a round white one, as is the refill for the formerly round pink one.

At least the Cabernet is still liquid and the same shade of red.
