These are things I fondly associate with aging when I think about all of my great-aunts and grandmother.
A) An afternoon highball
B) Owning a cat
D) Always having reading glasses readily available
E) Talking about today’s youth with eye-rolling and shoulder-shrugging
F) Needing a higher toilet seat to prevent knee crunching upon ascension/descention
G) Commenting on the tardiness of the mailman
H) Refusing to wear shoes with anything more than a one half inch wedge
I) Wearing red lipstick that creeps upward into the lines
J) Talking with a voice like Marge Simpson from years of smoking Camels
K) A comfortable housecoat
As I see it, at the ripe old age of forty-four, I am already there. The only thing I need off this list are I, J and K. Oy Vey!
