Most of the time my age doesn’t bother me. I usually forget, to be honest. I know how old I am but I don’t feel like what I thought middle aged would feel like so it’s easy to forget. Just the other day I was reminded of my age and forced to say it out loud, “ I will be 47 in a few months.” WTH??
Oh damn that sounds old, old, old. I know it’s not, but come on, do you have any idea how close that is to 50? I’m starting to freak out a little bit. Since I’ve said that out loud it seems like my body is realizing it is no longer 25 and now it wants to fall apart. Stuff is starting to hurt. I went to watch the boys play football and sitting on those bleachers just about killed me, my back hurt so bad! My back never hurts.
Now when I stand up after sitting for a while, I’m all creaky and hunched over. When did this happen? And to top it all off, I’m becoming a hypochondriac. I thought people were born like that but I’m starting to realize it happens as you get older and your body starts doing things you have no control over.
Clay helped me move a couch, I thought I had an aneurysm. Later I was driving and got a pain in my eye, I thought maybe I was having a stroke. And my damn bunion was hurting. At this rate I'll be bedridden within a week.
