My wife and I have been having an ongoing argument about age. Well, it's not really an argument because I'm not allowed to say anything about being old without ridicule and derision. I believe that we're getting old, together, at the same time. In fact, when I fell in love with her, I picked her knowing that this condition would happen and I still chose her everyday. By the way, she chooses me everyday she comes home to me and I know how lucky I am that she continues to choose me. However, ignoring the issue of age won't make it go away and pretending the we're not aging won't stop it from happening. I am a romantic realist and know the neither of us wants to be old, but let's face it folks, ain't none of us getting outta here alive, despite what you may have been told at the door when you bought your ticket... I know I can't solve this riddle, and I'm not looking to settle this "argument" between my wife and me, but I am interested in what other people think about this question of age. I really don't want platitudes quoted like, "you're as old as you feel" or "if you have your health, you have everything." That's all good stuff and most of it is true. But, day to day, how old I feel changes depending on how I may have abused my body the day, week, or years before. So, what do you consider old? I'm approaching 60 this year and I feel about 30, most of the time, as long as I don't look in the mirror. What about you?
