Never too late

Proving that it's never too late in life to have new experiences, my great uncle, who is in his late 70s, attended his first rock concert last weekend. And today, I read this amusing anecdote in The New York Times' Metropolitan Diary section:
Recently, I was at the City Bakery enjoying a bowl of oatmeal. Soon two women of   my vintage (silver-haired, slowish of step, sensibly shod) sat down next to me.
I’m not sure what I expected of their conversation: perhaps an anecdote concerning a grandchild, or the results of a recent bridge game.
Instead, one said to the other, with great enthusiasm, “So how was the BeyoncĂ© concert?” [The New York Times]
I can only hope that when I'm "silver-haired" and "slowish of step" that I'm having conversations like this.

  1. Yes! Let's make a pact now to see current performers when we are silver-haired... even if those silver hairs might be covered in hair color. It still counts
