Too old

I was recently asked about doing an interview for Cosmopolitan Magazine regarding addiction.

I talked to the writer, from New York City and we chatted for awhile.  Then she asked me how old I was...

Cue doom music...

I'm sorry to say, but 42 is too old.  Yep, they wanted someone who was young. In their 20's or early 30's.

Awkward. And a little bit ouch.

I just mentioned this to my 11 (almost 12) year old son.

He laughed at me.  Said, "Are you sad?"

I said, "No, not at all, it's cool."

He smirks, "You are in denial.  I can see it."

And he gets up to leave and catch the bus.

Funny boy. I am not in denial that I am getting old...damn it.


  1. That sucks! You know i have subscribed to Glamour and Cosmo since i was in college over 20 years ago. When i read it now it's all geared towards 20 yr olds and i'm not renewing my subscribtions. It's their loss that they still dont want to share the news and wake people up on addiction.
    I'm older than you are BTW and i enjoy life more and more each year.

    1. Me too!! It was pretty funny the way my son said it. Funny kid.

  2. I've always looked at it as when you cease to age it is not a good thing.
