Snap, crackle, and pop.
Grunt, groan, sigh.
OH, that hurts!
Wait, why does that hurt? I didn’t do anything! It didn’t hurt earlier in the day when I was shoveling gravel for 30 minutes and climbing in and out of a dump trailer at a 30 degree angle. Why does it hurt now?
All I did was slide into bed…
This getting old thing is not something to shake a stick at. I guess neither is the outta shape thing either. Combined, they make for the perfect pairing of mysterious hurts, aches, and ailments.
Last night I suddenly felt a twinge of pain in the left hip area when I slide into bed. Weird. I didn’t have that before. Needless to say, it woke me up a few times as I shifted positions.
It hasn’t bothered me much today but it was just one of those reminder pains that let’s me know I am getting old.
What reminds you that you are getting old?
Every time I look in the mirror and see the color of my hair I know I’m older. Right now it’s salt and pepper, and the salt is winning.
Can we agree that mirrors are “evil”? LOL
