That Awkward Age
Saturday, February 08, 2014
February is a weird month for using the cardio equipment at the gym. Well, for me anyway. I mean, because it's my birthday month. So every time I do the part where I enter my age and weight, I become all too acutely aware that that (age) number is going to change. Really soon now.
And right now it's even stranger, because I am coming up on a weird birthday. It's the seven squared birthday. That's right, 49. My last chance to still be in my first half-century.
I'm changing my mind about aging. I don't think I embrace it quite as readily as I did before. That grey at my temples that I convinced myself was distinguished? Now it just feels like I need to make a salon appointment, stat!
I think it will be better when I hit the big five-oh. Seven squared is such an awkward age.
