Old Age; Double Whammy

"It's sort of ironic," Dixie said recently, "about old age."

"First of all, you have lots of physical ailments; and to add insult to injury, young people treat you as if you had leprosy!"

She then went on...."I was asked to be on a committee at church with three young mothers.  Why I was asked is beyond me, but there it is.

"So, those three young mothers huddled in a corner and whispered about their husbands, lives, children, etc., while I sat across the room sort of like an outcast.  Eventually, one of them noticed me and the circle broke up.

"Ah," she added philosophically, "they'll grow old...they'll see."

Ah, yes, indeed.
