Arrrggghhh! Ageist assumptions strike again!

A young friend – in her mid thirties? – wrote a blog post today about her wonderful Dad, who died suddenly some years back.  She observes – “Today would be my dad’s 75th birthday. He would not have liked that milestone, but I sure would have.”

I doubt it.  I bet that he would take one look at how well his children have done, how his grandkids are flourishing & he’d be smug as a bug in a rug to be a glorious 75 years.  He might have dreaded it in his 60s & I’m sure he would have camped up his horror for one & all, but in his heart…  Nah – he’d take one look at all those beloved faces, remember all the memories, and been the soul of happiness to be a “geezer.”
