I always expected that it would take longer to notice getting older. I’ve been dismayed about certain changes.
One of them is the way I get tired. It’s not like, oh I’m started to get tired. I should start thinking about wrapping up what I’m doing because I’m feeling tired.
No. It’s like I’m tired right this second. Whatever I’m doing needs to be wrapped up immediately.
I have left 7 minutes of a show on the DVR because I have to go to bed. I have left the last 5 pages of my book unread. If I’m tired I’m finished. Immediately.
