My father turns 70 next week and it's really making ME feel old. I'm used to thinking of my parents as middle-aged. My very definition of middle age has always been whatever age my parents currently are.
But 70 suddenly seems much much older than 69. It makes me realize that in a few years I'll be crossing into my 40s. Then I'LL be middle-aged. Ouch.
Ah, don't sweat it. I did it three years ago and survived. So will you. it doesn't hurt.
