I was venting to a coworker about these noisy bastards living next to me. I actually said the words, “goddamn teenagers and their Bluetooth machines”. I stand by my admonition but man it was my greatest age leap forward since I embraced the sensible Toyota.
When my wife asked if there was anything she need to pick up at the store, and I responded: “I think we’re out of asparagus.”
Not sure what foul demon possessed me to to say those words.

I am the grumpy old lady now.
My housemate: you want a drink?
Me: Nah, man. I haven’t had a drink in… six months maybe? More?
