Surprise of Old Age

Getting old is a surprise. It is as if your friends who do movie special effects applied latex makeup and a fat suit while you slept. You awake to a bald forehead. Your muscles are gone. Fat pads appear. You have been given some drug that makes your body ache and move slowly. It makes your thoughts clouded. It is so embarrassing. Your sex life must end. Friends tell you that you should find people your own age sexy. Are you mad? I am not a pervert! Everyone treats you as an old man. They don’t realise it is just a disguise that you cannot remove.
