    @Seawalker: I deposited into the Social Security fund for 40 years ❗ I plan to live long enough to get back every penny I put in…. I plan to live to at least 100 ❗ πŸ˜€ So far I’ve received 6 Social Security checks. My next one is tomorrow ❗ Automatically deposited into my checking account like clockwork every 3rd Wednesday of the month ❗ Date you receive it now depends on your birth date. Love it ❗ πŸ˜€

    Seriously – did anyone ever really think that their P-hair would turn gray? LOL.
    Yet, armpit air stays all black? WWD? LOL.
    You know you’ve come full circle when you start examining your navel again . . . . πŸ˜†

    …when the saying, ‘how’s it hanging?’ literally means it is hanging. πŸ˜†

    When people ask you (out of politeness), “How’s it going”, and you proceed to actually tell them how it’s going . . . .

    When the day of your birth comes around and you actually forget that it is your birthday! LOL.

    Okay – maybe that’s a situation of “conveniently” forgetting . . . . πŸ˜‰

    MLC Milestones that you can think of…

    …when you talk to the youngins, they all sound like they got attitude. Actually, you’re the one with the attitude because you expect the young punks to talk to you with respect, kindness, and naivite. But no matter, half the time you can’t hear WTH they’re saying because you stay losing your hearing. That’s the real problem. πŸ˜†

    MLC Milestones that you can think of…

    …when you actually go around telling people you feeling old. Yes, you are feeling old b/c you are old! You make lame excuses why you cannot carry that 25 lb. bag of rice. Too old. Nope, that’s not it. Too lazy? Yup, that’s it. Either that or you know from previous experience it knocks the wind out of you doing anything strenuous. πŸ˜†

    @Keoni: so true! When my son got out of the Navy, I thought the “F” word was the ONLY word in his vocabulary. Thankfully after 2 years of college….. he is more refined today and rarely uses it!

    When you have so many medications, you resort to those pill organizer thingies.

    @keoni & @LK – LOL, use da ‘F’ word only sparingly. Analogy. Too much ajinomoto not only falsely accents the food, it makes you thirsty. Speaking of… that’s why you feel hungry after eating in a Chinese restaurant. The aji or fish bone (not ahi πŸ˜† ) makes you thirsty. You drink cup after cup of water to quench your thirst. But all that water takes up space in your stomach. Only temporarily though. Therefore, not long after you eat, you feel hungry again. “Ohhhh, Grasshopper… is that why you went to college?” “Why yes, Master” πŸ˜†

    MLC Milestones that you can think of…

    …is when you ‘earn’ the reputation of being stubborn and the rest of the family acknowledges it. It’s not necessarily being stubborn. More like hard-head. Hard-head is a function of growing old. Just count the number of giri-giri on some of the great-grandpas. If it was a bowling ball, no need any more holes to throw a strike. πŸ˜†

    MLC Milestones that you can think of…

    …is when you start wearing sweaters around the house during the summer months in Hawaii. The skin grows thin in old age. So you start bundling up. Can’t even imagine that ski jacket you have to wear when you go outside to do yard work. And another thing. Those that wear sweaters get big opu. Just let your stomach lead. πŸ˜†

    Hey, we’ve got Peter Pan in the house. Isn’t he the one who never wanted to grow up? Welcome to Never, Neverland. πŸ˜† Out of all the ailments of getting old, the vision is the one that bothers me the most. Got 20/20 hearing, 20/20 smell, 20/20 taste, 20/20 touch, but 20/20 million vision. Hai, shigata ganai! Sometimes, it feels like being on the Planet of the Apes. πŸ˜†

    I never wanted to grow up. I should have been more specific. LOL – I should have specified that I didn’t want to get old!

    @4G – LOL, see, it’s another way of saying that when we’re old, we want to be young again. Hope they find a cure for the memory one of these days. You can’t take with you any possessions when you go, but you sure can have good memories all the way up to the very end.

    Another option? LOL, you talking fountain of youth? The closest thing I can think of is the fountain at one side of Kapiolani Park. People bathe in there so it’s definitely not the elixir of the gods. πŸ˜†

    Fountain of youth brings to mind two favorite movies where they never got old — Lost Horizon and The Green Mile.

    Not sure if I never want to get old, it’s more the looking old and feeling old that bothers me. :smile:
