Several years ago I ran a half-marathon that I was not ready for. Which means I had issues negotiating stairs for several days. One of those challenging days, my boss saw me, laughed and said, "Welcome, to O L D."
Of course I protested that I wasn't old, but he just laughed more.
Now, several years later I'm hearing those words again... in my head.
I've been using reading glasses for a few years. I have noticed that it's more difficult to read without the aid of my glasses. Not impossible, but definitely more difficult, especially on mornings after a poor night's sleep or reading for a long duration.
The OLD part comes in last week when I realized I forgot to bring my prescription reading glasses. I was on my way to my client's office for 4 days. 4 days without my glasses! I was having trouble reading the newspaper, how was I going to spend 4 days attached to my computer without reading glasses? So I crossed the line, purchased my very first pair of drug store glasses and said to myself, "Welcome to O L D."
