I'm getting older

Ok. This is true for our entire lives. But there seems to be a moment when you get it. My moment came today.

1) I had my first dermatologist all-over check. I’m healthy but sans “age spots.”

2) Blue Cross sent me a little card saying: Your monthly premiums are going to go from $204 to $349. Happy Birthday.

The moment says “take good care of this thing you have called a body because, otherwise, the visits to the mechanic are going to get expensive.

Life so far has gotten beter every year, and I expect it to continue on this pat. You couldn’t pay me to be 14 again.
