I've been noticing some things lately.
Gravity seems to have been working overtime on me.
I came to a startling realization the other day. It came on an unseasonably warm day when I donned a sleeveless shirt.
And then I saw them.
There was a time when my arms were so skinny and scrawny that I was embarrassed to wear anything sleeveless.
So I didn't.
For many, many years.
It would seem that instead of that perfect moment when my arms would be just right, I have completely missed the window and gone straight to flabby arm dangle. When in the world did THAT happen?
Another thing about growing older... exercising is harder. That may seem like I'm stating the obvious but here is the thing.
I can still walk fast on the track. Just as fast as I used to. However, afterwards......
Not in a oh-good-my-muscles-ache-because-I-used-them-kind-of-hurt, but just an OW-my knees hurt--OW--my hip joints hurt--OW--I-can't-get-up-out-of-this-chair-without-saying-OW-hurt.
And another thing...now I know why people start to snore as they age. Not only is gravity pulling your facial skin to your toes, it's also pulling the inside of you down...down...down. Hence...you snore.
Did you think the inside of your throat could sag? Well, it does.
Not that I would know about snoring....bwahahahahaha.
Don't even get me started about how you can eat half of what you used to, but weigh lots more than you ever have.
