I’ve never been one to worry about my age. I turned another year older last month. No big deal, but I don’t like what goes along with it.

My body is falling apart.

I woke up this morning and couldn’t hear out of my right ear. That’s weird for me, being in a business where we wear headphones every day. I hear myself differently now.

Ever since I started running a few years ago, my left ankle began to swell, and it has never gone back to normal. Probably because I have flat feet. I’ve gotten the good running shoes and still no improvement. Now, I’m feeling needle-like pains in the same ankle, which means I’ll be making a trip to the doctor.

My eyesight, which has always been good, isn’t so good anymore. I often squint when looking at the computer, and there’s a reason I’m sitting closer to the screen. Is it too close if I bump my nose when I look down at the keyboard?

I don’t care about the number of birthdays. But, why don’t we come with warranties?
