When I was a kid, growing older seemed to be the best thing that could ever occur. At some point, however, this attitude changed. I now respond to aging with a mixed bag of emotions.
Sure, you are given certain privileges such as a driver’s license and entry into R-rated movies, but there seem to be more aches and pains as you grow older.
During a recent trip to visit my grandparents in Boca Raton, Fla., I learned the scales shift back and forth between the pros and cons as you progress further and further in life.
When my parents and I arrived at the hotel, I received an unexpected, but still pleasant, surprise for my getting up there in years – my own hotel room.
For years whenever I visited my grandparents, I slept on their couch.
My grandparents’ early bed-time meant I had to tip-toe around their condo and when I was finally ready to sleep, I fumbled around the living room searching for light switches to turn off lamps and sconces that my grandparents typically let burn 24 hours a day.
Plus, I was always given the same set of sheets to use – pale blue, lace-trimmed silk sheets that stuck to me like plastic wrap while also twisting into a tangled knot on the sofa’s seat cushions.
