One of The Less-Discussed Perks of Getting Older
I had a flash of inspiration last week (one of those delayed flashes, apparently) while flushing my body of the toxins filtered by kidneys & the liver. As the light in the bathroom failed to come on last night, I momentarily (and groggily) panicked. I pulled myself together, finished a stand-up job and reflected that a younger man might've been taken aback by such a predicament. But my years of experience with "the equipment" allowed me to succeed! Sure, it doesn't make up for the random hair appearing all over my body, the increasing amount of gray in said hair or the other ravages of age, but it's something.
