I worked the U-T Successful Aging Expo today. About 10,000 people are expected during the two-day event, many of whom looked like they've never exercised or ran too much back in the day. It's amazing how you can detect those with a runner's bum-hip walk. Still, it's inspiring to see those that have aged well and even those who haven't but continue to persevere.
Seniors love freebies and they love to stop and talk, even if the topic - losing your memory - makes them uncomfortable.
One woman in her late 70s said she's looking to give her husband something new to do. Retirement apparently wasn't going well. Then she leaned in and told me in a hushed tone:
"I married him for better or for worse, but not for lunch every day!"
