It seems like overnight, people are starting to age around me.
Suddenly, I’m seeing laugh crinkles around the eyes, faint forehead lines, grey hairs.
And I’m feeling it myself. A bad night’s sleep leads to a sore back the next day. I’m a little pudgier in spots. It’s disconcerting, to say the least.
It’s all downhill from here, I guess?
