After my last birthday, “72!” After that birthday, what it amounts to?

I’m at that age when my brain thinks I’m still in my 20’s, but my body keeps asking, “Are you done yet? Better not eat that. Can we take a nap?”

What I heard?

“I knew you were old. I didn’t know you were that old!”

My favorite?

“You look really good for 72! No, I mean, like really good!”

A business associate and friend, her daughter reacted when I suggested I was 72. “Wow, you’re older than my mom. My mom, she’s like almost 60.”

I do birth charts based on birth data. I know how old her mom is. It’s on the far side of me, and the far side of that cited number. Mom still looks really good, that’s not the question, just kids and parents’ ages.

“You look good for 72.”

Thanks, man.
