How you know you're looking ( and getting) old

When a 20-something Beto O'Rourke campaign staffer doing a door - to - door , advising you the candidate has new proposals at his website, asks you if you have Internet access.

I can short-circuit all of that by simply looking in the mirror!!

For a variety of reasons, I try to avoid looking in the mirror , except when shaving.

Oops, oops and oops.
I don't know Marilyn Manson, never heard of Jordan Peele, and don't look in the mirror to shave. I haven't shaved since 1975. I do trim my beard on clipper 1 every week at the local barber, who paid for my trims for a couple of years by letting me win several hundred dollars in their football tipping competition. :D

But of course the definition of old, as I may have mentioned before, is someone who is 15 years older than you.

This example youi provide is not my problem-I know I'm getting old as I just can't weed my garden like I used to-the bending, the legs, the knees. Regards, Len :(

When your student asks how old you are, you reply "100" and they seem to believe it.
