Rodger Pettichord Posted March 22, 2019 Share Posted March 22, 2019 Most people who know me say that I am a nice old man. What they don't know is that the vulnerabilities of age are my hidden secret. My hearing is down about 50%, so I miss about 50% of what is said, and therefore just smile and nod agreeably in most conversations. My eyesight is blurred by macular degeneration, glaucoma, and eye-medications, so I don't see most of the gaffs, flaws, and mistakes those around me make, and therefore just keep a kind, forgiving look on my face in most situations. Because I am basically clueless most of the time, people perceive me to be peaceful, sympathetic, and understanding. I love it. The way I figure, by the time I have lost all my senses, I will be seen as a saint. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
