I am realizing that I'll be in the "old dad" category once Benjamin and I are able to do father/son activities like baseball/football/skiing... I typically have a good attitude about age. Every year gets better and better, but lately my body has been telling me what my mind refuses to accept. I still hustle the best to my abilities playing hoops on Mondays. But here's a laundry list of ailments I'm feeling today:
1. Sprained ankle that just won't heal. This has cost me 1/2 a step from my normally slow reaction time.
2. Shoulder that hurts when I throw. This is a personal tragedy since I still throw rocks, heave footballs, and toss dirt clods whenever I can. Even when Geri and I are walking in the neighborhood.
3. Feeling worn out after getting dominated on the court by 18-22 year-olds.
4. Feeling a little down because of 1,2 and 3.
Enough bad news. The good news is that we have Butterfinger Ice Cream Bars in the freezer. If you haven't sampled these delicacies-you are missing out!
