This is a question Getting Old

Drimble asks: When was it last brought home to you just how old you're getting? We last asked this in 2004, and you're eight years older now. Eight. Years.

The Warranty has Expired
In the last 5 years, since I turned 50, I've had the following:

1) heart operation (faulty mitral valve)
2) Hernia operation
3) brain surgery (removal of cavernous malformation - a blood vessel bleeding into my brain)
4) removal of dermoid cyst behind my eye.

All of these were problems with the body caused BEFORE I WAS BORN. So I'm not getting old, but all of the manufacturer's defects are now catching up with me.

No, fuck it - I'm an old bastard.

You make it sound like you're some sort of Soviet car.
Maybe it was just your fate to be a Lada.

A Trabant?
Aren't they made of cardboard? Keep on trucking, but sound a bit iffy

Don't know enough about the genetics of 1, 3 & 4 to comment.
Mate having had a couple - hernias just mean you're over-doing it.
Get a better mattress and try doggy style I say.

I wish that had been the cause - no, it was installing a new ceiling light, standing up on a ladder, holding the fucker while trying to attach the wires, fix the bracket to the mounting box... You needed six arms, all with the strength of a titan and the dexterity of a soviet girl gymnast.
