I’m getting out of the car at the grocery store. An elderly lady, leaning on her shopping cart on her way to her car, stops to watch me put the wheelchair together. “Isn’t that amazing?” she says.
“Yup,” I say.
She tells me about her spinal stenosis. And her bad balance. And how she hates to use the walker, but has to lean on the shopping cart.
“Getting old’s a bitch,” I say.
She thinks this is really funny.
