Jesus wept, you know what I am sick of hearing every single day? "It's so cold this morning! I'm freezing!" It could be the middle of winter OR summer and yet I still hear the same goddamn thing every morning from my geezer patients. Look old people: YOU'RE OLD! You're always going to be cold for the [hopefully very] short period that is the rest of your life. Get used to it, stop bitching about it and put on a fucking sweater! It's like Chinese water torture having to hear the same thing every morning and frankly, I have run out of polite ways to sympathize. From now on I'm just going to reply, "No shit Sherlock, look in the goddamn mirror, it's because you're fucking OLD!"

I really hope you will do that, but I fear you are bluffing. Please prove me wrong and record yourself saying that to the next old person who complains they are cold.

I don't remember when it happened, but at some point I started listening to myself and discovered that I do comment on the weather. Sometimes I even find myself in a conversation about the weather. What's next? "Oh, hey, look, gravity still seems to be in effect today." "Yeah, but it's not like the gravity we had yesterday." "I remember a year when the gravity was almost .0045% stronger than it was this year." "Yep, yep, I remember that. Heavy feet we had, that year."

Of course, I have to admit to being prematurely middle-aged, so perhaps I shouldn't be surprised.
