Signs of Aging
This is the order in which I begin to notice that people in certain jobs seemed younger than I'd expected:
- Cops. I recall looking at a police officer years ago and thinking, "That guy looks like he's in high school."
- Politicians. I confess to a certain bias here. Although JFK was a major political figure of my youth, so was Eisenhower and I've never bought into the "younger is better" baloney. And now I see some presidential candidates and wonder if they strolled in from a race for student council.
- Baseball Players. What is this? Little League?
- Doctors. This was the final trench. I met a doctor a couple of years back who seemed like a very bright eighth grader. Of course, she probably thought I look like Rip Van Winkle. Both of us may be correct.
