Old People are Awesome!

Old People Are Stoned:

Last xmas, I happened across my dad searching for his reading glasses while they were already perched atop his head, and I thought, “If I didn’t know any better I’d say my dad was stoned.” He wasn’t of course. He’s just transitioning from middle-aged into senior discount land. But more and more lately my parents have been reminding me of potheads, and it’s dawned on me…

Old people are in essence stoned at all times.

What used to seem like the sad ravages of age are a lot less alarming if you just imagine the person being high. Then it’s kinda adorable. Hell, I can really relate to my grandparents now.

And my dad told me (although I was almost certainly drunk and don’t remember correctly) that he wanted to start smoking pot after he retired. He won’t need to, apparently.
