What does it really mean to get older? In terms of brain power, weight gain, caretaking roles and keeping it together? As the writer complained to one of her friends: The older I get, the stupider I get. And he replied: You are not getting stupider, it is just your perception of yourself catching up to the reality. Hilarious!
