Life catches up with all of us.
That's because the older you get, the slower you get
It's open gym season now for basketball in town, so I take all three kids on Sunday so mama bear gets a break.
I was playing some pickup ball, and my oldest asked my when I jump, why I don't jump very high....
Mine did the same thing. Kid came home from college for Christmas. Roughhousing in the back yard, got a little serious (because he was finally going to show the old man up). He looked at me in a clutch, and said "I got you now, old man".
Five seconds later he was flat on his back with his left side paralyzed. Dog over him, licking his face as the kid contorted a bit in pain. I told him "You're young, that will wear off in a few. I taught you everything you know. I did NOT, however, teach you everything I know"
I expect round 2 come spring break
Have a bit more patience with newbies. Of course some of them act dumb -- they're often students, for heaven's sake. - Terry Pratchett
