YOU KNOW YOU'RE GETTING OLD WHEN . . .
James Martin Capozzola of The Rittenhouse Review has one of those moments whose coming most of us dread:
Very Attractive Twenty-something Woman: Hey, why so glum?Hang in there "old man"!
Me: Oh, I don’t know, nothing really.
Very Attractive Twenty-something Woman (handing me some sort of coupon): Come to Coyote Ugly tonight. You’ll have fun!
Me: Uh, okay, thanks. [You know, it’s just that sort of lame response that has kept me from scoring with the really hot chicks for two decades now.]
Twenty-something Man on a Bicycle (swooping down on me): Hey, what’s she handing out?
Me: I don’t know, something for a bar or a club or something. Have it.
Twenty-something Man on a Bicycle: Cool. Thanks, old man.
