So after I mentioned my age (62) in my column last weekend, I got an email from a reader who lives north of Spokane.
She said her husband was surprised by this disclosure because he always assumed he was the same age as me.
He is 78.
My immediate reaction?
Maybe I need a new mug shot.
It's sort of encouraging to think someone assumes I'd still be cranking out six columns a week 16 years from now.
