Despite my non-violent predilection, should I ever meet the person who coined the phrase “Growing old gracefully,” I would probably hit him. After all, how many seniors do you know who have aged gracefully? Some seniors I know may be less aggrieved than others, but virtually everyone I know has one (or more) afflictions.
I can’t speak for all seniors, but I have found aging to be, well, an interesting experience. We all know about “senior moments”: Why did I walk into this room? What’s the damn name of the person who’s walking towards me in the supermarket? Who did I just dial? Why didn’t the kids give all the grandchildren the same name?
