Not only does this article discuss one of my favorite old movies (Vision Quest), it doesn’t pull punches. Getting old sucks, wrinkles suck, but there is some good things like wisdom that comes with those saggy balls.
If fear of aging gets to be too much for you, you can always crawl into a hole and hide. Alcoholism is a hole you can crawl into. Deliberately sabotaging your relationships with your loved ones is another one. Developing a crappy, hateful attitude towards everything and constantly complaining…that’s another hole. Every one of us probably knows somebody who’s in a hole right now, either the ones I mentioned or some other one they’ve engineered to avoid dealing with the years when life starts to change.
