FHB: Getting Old Takes Courage

Katherine Hepburn was sure right about getting old being only for the brave. I recently blew $23 on a lotion to make my skin look more radiant and my age spots less visible. It was going to take 8 weeks to see the difference. I’m throwing the stuff away after 2 weeks. Either I’m rapidly getting more age spots or the new radiance makes all of them more visible. My mother never told me about all of facial changes I would experience as a gift for living so long. Perhaps she knew that I am not one of the brave — Frum Helen Back/Hauser Thoughts.

DFO: I’ve made one concession to age as a result of a twice-blown ACL in my left knee — no more baseball or side-to-side sports.

Question (not for Sam The Intern, Sarah, or you other Gen Yers): Have you made any concessions to age, yet?
