  • Aside from my occasionally achy old man knees (which have been achy and old since high school), I now also have old man neck.

    When a co-worker said my name, I turned to look at them, my neck made a loud popping noise and my head snapped clean off, falling to the floor.

    Aside from finding out that the carpet under my desk is dusty, I now have a dull achy neck to compliment the dull achy headache I've had off n on for days now.

    Which leads me to think that if I am this full of complaints now, by the time I really am old, John is going to have to take me out back to shoot me just to shut me up.

    Hopefully he’ll get a good price for the body at the glue factory.
