Being Old

By Russ Bickerstaff

I should point out that I’m new at this “being old,” thing. I might not be doing it right. I think that I’m failing miserably at failing miserably. (That’s part of being old, isn’t it? Maybe not. I mean, if it isn’t I wouldn’t know, would I?) I’m happy to let you know that you’re doing everything wrong, though. After all, I don’t think that you should be doing what you’re doing now that … I mean I guess by “old” I mean “dead.” And since you’re the one who made me that way, I’m in a position to judge you.
