I've been hearing a lot of talk amongst my friends and the people I meet at parties about being old. Okay, I hear ya, being old can be tough, right? This is of course when you're actually OLD. I start tuning out when I hear excuses about being too old to do certain things in your twenties. Come to think of it this talk bothers me at ANY age, but that's because I come from the firm belief that everyone is capable of great accomplishments through out their entire lives start to finish and a lot of which these can't be started, let alone done until you're "old" by some people's standards. So tonight when I got into a conversation at a friend's Birthday party in a dimlight day-glo bowling alley about being past prime before the age of 30 instead of giving 'em the normal you're never too old speech I sat there and listened and thought to myself you can't change the perceptions of others.
Not literally of course. That would be unlady like.
