Realizing You're Getting Older Sucks

Having to make a trip to the doctor this weekend and being put on Vicodin has not only made me a little high, but has also made me realize once again I am not a young puppy anymore and with that realization comes the fact that maybe I can't do quite everything that I used to do. I should have known better since I did a Google on "old man" and my photo popped up. That reminds me - on a different subject. If you Google "failure" the first search return will be George W. Bush at Of course the #4 return will be Michael Moore which is probably more accurate, but I won't get into politics. Anyway, back to the back - I had it coming, spending last weekend tearing up the back yard that seemed to never want to grow decent grass and laying in new sod. Mr. Save-a-buck had to prove to himself that he could still do it all in a day in 90 plus weather. What an idiot. But I realize the male in me makes me want to "do it myself" because hiring someone to do it would somehow admit to failure, even if I screw it up, I can stand back and say that I did it myself. So here I sit at 1:30am not being able to sleep, with a wrenched up back, but happy in a narcotic haze. Ah, the small pleasures to be derived from legally gained drugs. I would say that I will promise myself that I will take it a little easier from now on, but I also know that the testosterone will once again kick in and I will repeat the performance. I'll get the message one day though and I feel that it will be coming sooner rather than later. Maybe I should give up on sex for a while - oh wait, I was already doing that. Now that would have been something worth throwing the back out on. With that comes a joke on getting older:

After retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply for Social Security. The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver's license to verify my age. I looked in my pockets and realized I had left my wallet at home. I
told the woman that I was very sorry, but I would have to go home and come back later. The woman said, "Unbutton your shirt." So I opened my shirt revealing my curly silver hair. She said, "That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me," and she processed my Social Security application. When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about my experience at the
Social Security office. She said, "You should have dropped your pants... you might have gotten disability, too."

Have a great Labor Day to all of the hard-working out there who deserve a day of honor and rest. I guess that summer is officially beginning to end.

Are you saying that you're aging like milk? Men never get older, darlin', just better at it.... {=}

I don't think that I am past my expiration date as of yet, but I have noticed a bit of curdling lately. I should be cottage cheese in a year or two. They do say that with age comes experience so I will have to hope that this transcends into other areas as well. Thanks.

"gotten disability too..." ROFL - But, hey don't be too hard on yourself man we all overdo it sometimes at least you've got a sense of humor about it - that's cool

Thanks...if you can't laugh at yourself who can you laugh at and believe me, I have a lot to laugh about...I'll be at it again in a day or two and I do like a challenge. Have a great day!

Sorry! I didn't get past the part about Vicodin.

Yes, I can attest to the almost hypnotic effects of hydrocodone. Now after a couple of days I realize also how some could get addicted to it.

Yeah, I sometimes think that had it been I, I would be parking in handicapped parking right now. Thanks for stopping by and have a pleasant work week if that is possible after what I hope was a long, enjoyable, and relaxing weekend for you.
