Yikes!

It's summer in Florida, the AC is NOT running, and I just discovered that holding my hands over the toaster felt good. That may be the most startling evidence of impending old age that I've experienced!

"Impending old age"? Didn't you just turn 40?

Yes. And it was only yesterday that I was wondering how long it would be before I turned 20. Time passes quickly.

I think old starts about 26. Culturally insignificant, based on the majority of advertising, is official by 36.

I'll accept those ages. I was about 26 when I realized I didn't much care for the new music that was coming out. By the time I was 36 I didn't even know what the names of the bands and singers were.

You are all wrong - old age starts at 21 - cause as soon as you realize you have to be an adult and grow up, that's when the gray hairs start (or in my case, at 50 - when you officially become ancient and realize most of your life has passed you by!)

That's why you have soup on a boiling hot day. Get the inside as hot as the outside. It's 90 in Brooklyn today. Ouch.
