This topic needs a new category because methinks it’s going to come up more often: Old Age.
I don’t know if it’s actually increasing as I get older or if I’m simply noticing it more because the consequences are in my face, but I seem to be dropping things left and right. Sometimes I’ll drop something, pick it up, drop it again, pick it up again, drop it a third time, then stand there and think… do I really need this?
I mean, as I get older things as simple as bending over… and getting back up, just sayin’… are somewhat of a chore. As I get older the prospect that what is now on the floor can just stay there gets more and more appealing. I can kind of understand how an older person’s home becomes a hoarder’s paradise. The person’s mindset could very well be, “Meh, I didn’t need that anyway.”
