A = aging…

pixie-1087034_640Have you ever thought about
aging ?

I didn’t when I was young.
Oh, I knew old people,
anyone who was a real adult was old in my eyes,
I couldn’t imagine that someday I would
look and think like them.

I’m not talking about celebrities but regular old people
like parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles, doctors and teachers.
Now that I am of a certain age it amazes me how young these people are.
Babies are having babies!
And don’t get me started on doctors!
I mean really when did they get so young?
Isn’t there an  age requirement to get a medical license?

Well, I have aged and though I am told I don’t look my age
I know what I look like first thing in the morning and last thing at night
and it ain’t pretty.  Not ugly but definitely old.

It’s okay.
Well, it isn’t really okay but in life if you don’t age you’re dead.

That’s my post for the letter

  1. I think that no matter how old I am, doctors and preachers should be older than me. Not my age. Certainly not younger than me! I had to go to a new doctor a couple of years ago and that girl had to have still been in kindergarten. I remember when I was a little girl, my pediatrician had to be about a hundred years old. These new, young doctors are making me feel like *I* am the hundred year old now. 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

  2. What a delightful “A” post and one I could relate to all too well! The older we get the younger everyone else seems. I feel like the “grandma” at the office, and the slow-moving old lady at morning and night. But not all about aging is bad, we can pretty much do what we want and get away with it, people will just chalk it up to our advancing years! 😉

    1. You are right…aging is what you make of it. I am okay with being old(er). I just hope this stage of life lasts a long time. 😉

  3. When I was a kid I never thought of aging physically, but I did think of being older in years and what that meant. In all honesty I never thought I’d live to see my 20’s, and I’m still surprised when I really let myself think about it. Nice post 👍

  4. Aging came as rather a shock to me too. Parts of me just don’t work like they used to, and it’s all downhill from here. But maybe I’ll get one of those chair-lifts for the stairs, and then going downhill won’t be so hard. LOL! Have a great weekend!

    1. I get a shock every time I look in the mirror! In my mind I look much younger. 😉 I don’t think of it as downhill more potholes in the road though.

  5. I do feel old at 46, there are Doctors younger than me. I started feeling old in my 30s when police officers were younger than me.

          1. No. No. No. That’s impossible. I just noted how far down the alphabet you’ve come. Scary is right. I can’t keep up on a good day let alone after being away. ❤ ❤

  6. Visiting from a to z challenge. Aging is tricky. I remember a few years ago when my wife discovered our pastor at the time was younger than her. It was only by a few months and he was relatively young but it was still rather shocking to her.

    1. It does seem some people should always be older than we are. Somehow that doesn’t work out. Thanks for visiting and commenting, Dave.
