“Age-appropriate,” forsooth…

I’m outside working on the porch railing this morning. Kind of wanting some tunes I hadn’t heard a million times before I rummaged around on Youtube with the smartphone – didn’t know I could do that until recently – and found a Led Zeppelin playlist. Okay.

Nothing’s free, of course. There’s a quicky commercial inserted every tune or two. And I wouldn’t mind that, advertisements are one of the prices we pay for cheap plentiful goods, but for god’s sake…

The ads are age-appropriate, it seems. So I’m listening to Whole Lotta Love and Immigrant Song and Dazed and Confused in between ads for Metamucil and AARP and diabetes meds.

T’ain’t fair. Hey, maybe those guys got old. Me, I’m still in my twenties. All these sore joints and this swollen prostate and these glaucoma-dimmed eyes, I don’t know where they came from…

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    Yup, my brain is about 35 maybe 40. Mentally, I can do whatever the hell I want to and I know how. But the joints, oy vey, are very much of a almost 66 year-old who has done precisely that.
