Signs of Ageing

There's a process to ageing, a certain kind of rhythm. The obvious signs are all very well: the grey hairs, the lines around the eyes, the creaking knees. These are kind of expected; predictable, easier (by some measure) to tolerate.

But it's the unexpected signs of ageing that stand out the most. Like hearing oneself say:

"I think I'll get these. They're the best fitting gardening gloves I've ever found." 
Ah, me.
