My parents are only in their late 60’s. First off, when did late 60’s seem like its NOT old? Secondly, when did my parents get wrinkles? When did my mom get the ‘yes’ shakes? When did my dad get old man grumpy? When did both of them start to take so many pills??
It’s tough seeing my mother, this proud women, admit defeat over certain things with her body that have refused to work. It’s tough noticing that my father can’t do all of the handyman stuff he once could.
I love those old fuckers. They need to stick around to see their grandkids graduate from high school. Yeah, M only just graduated from preschool. Yes, D is only turning 2 this month. I can dream, can’t I?
