In the 'Stupid Question' thread, a poster asked when to expect to be 'over the hill'
My thought is that 40 and 50 are fun, after that it's just pity points, and I hope that you all can expect and enjoy the jokes at those ages.
I basically said that at 40, 50, 60, 70 years stuff happens and it is not consistent. Not being able to search, I cannot even quote myself.
At mid 40s, we realize that our basketball games get a little shorter; stamina, don't you know? And perimenopause, which is different for each of us..
At 50, our stamina decreases, hair is graying (unless you are related to me: then it just thins). For women, it is pretty obvious no more babies and a major change in some attitudes. And ooooh, we are almost 60!
At 60, the joints get more painful and the muscles weaken, but it's still doable. Memory isn't quite so sharp, but the theory is that we have so much stuff there that we have to sift through to get what we want. I think 2 days is a little long, but...whatever. We have both been happy with modern medicine: my back, his eyes, his knee, various pills for blood pressure, cholesterol, asthma, pain.
At 70, Lucas and I are just arriving. Scared crapless, but still enjoying what we have.
Yes. Over the Hill. But downhill is easier going, sometimes.
So, how y'all doing? How do you feel about that?
