  2. That was me last year when the California Department of Motor Vehicles politely requested I have the photo on my driver's license updated after 20-something years. Now every time I look at my license I think, "Who's that old man?"

    I hate drivers' license photos. I always get "jail matron" no matter what I try to do.

    It is nothing if it doesn't roll on 30" x 3 1/2" clinchers or on 440/450 x 21" balloons.

    Oh yes, and they don't come any funnier than Mr. Connolly's take on a prostrate examination.

    I just googled my teen crush. She is now 62 years old. Aren't teen crushes supposed to stay forever young??

    Verona Pooth (Feldbusch), now 51 years old, half bolivian. Not really my teen crush (never had one), but very popular in the 90s.

    They do, just don't put 'in 2019' after their name on google searches.

    When you find out the flashing lights and floaters that suddenly appeared in your eye meant you might have to have immediate eye surgery for retinal detachment. Getting older sucks.

    You will feel a slight pressure. Never knew before that my doctor was such a liar. :eek:

    When the business report on the radio leads with news that the clothing retailer Forever 21 has filed for bankruptcy protection and plans to shutter nearly 200 stores.

    Forever 21 may have entered my consciousness at a point or two, but I can’t recall precisely when that might have been.

    Tonight’s report informs that the chain was founded with a single store in the 1990s by a married couple, Korean immigrants both, and their kids. They were pioneers in something called “fast fashion.” They got the latest looks in the stores in a hurry and turned it over just in time for the next hot thing.

    I was already a good couple of decades past the age of the store’s target audience when they got it off the ground.

    You know you are getting old when you cough and fart at the same time, and can't do much to avoid either. (So embarrassing.)
