AT YOUR AGE !
I certainly remember hearing “at your age” as a teenager ~
What were you thinking, at your age you should know better ! Said before or after ~ If your friends jumped off a cliff, would you ?
Now, as a senior citizen, I hear AYA in a completely different context ~
Well, you could, but at your age …
At your age, do you think …
But, at your age, it wouldn’t …
You probably shouldn’t, after all, at your age …
Couldn’t ~ Wouldn’t ~ Shouldn’t ~ What ?
What am I ?
Infirm? Incompetent ? Feeble ? Physically ? Mentally ? Emotionally ?
Sure, on any given day ~ a moment, a minute, an hour, or on a bad day, the entire freakin’ day might be a waste of time.
It’s called old age ~ I’m retired ~ you’re elderly ~ she’s old fogey ~ he’s an old-timer ~ she’s a geezer.
You’re either old or you’re dead.
And at my age … so far, I’m just old !
Get over it.
