Post details: to be an old man

May 07, 2007 : to be an old man

I've wanted to be an old man for a while. Perhaps it started with the "Michigan State Grandpa" tshirt that I bought (my friend Brian got one too) while visiting a friend at MSU several years ago. Or perhaps when Cherith starting saying to me: "You've got rice in your beard, old man!" The advantages of being an old man are great: you can be weird and looney, or just plain grouchy and people write it off: "he's just an old man". You also get to have a big gray beard. And years of "wisdom" to yell at little'uns by. Now today the internet was out at my apartment for a while so I went for a jog. I haven't done that in a while and now my legs are sore. And weak, especially when trying to stand up from sitting. So I feel like an old man since I have trouble even standing myself up. Also today, I got the results from my MRI on my elbow (I fell on it before winter and it hurts when pushed straight in certain ways) and it turns out nothing is wrong really. Everything is normal; I just have to live with it (which isn't too bad). I forget how it came up when I was talking about it at work, but Drew concluded it makes me like an old man.

Step by step I'm working towards my goal. Pretty soon I'll age past you all!

I too have long looked forward to being an old man. That's why I got rid of my hair early etc. Did you know I'm only 24?

You should make your Turing test a "Canadian Intelligence Test".

I'm sorry to hear that your elbow is normal, but hurts. Doesn't make sense to me.
