My new running shoes

I just got back from a 15-minute "run" (slow jog).  Piano Boy asked about the shiny white "new" running shoes I was setting back in the box. 

"They're not new," I said, "I've had them a couple years."  The receipt was in the box.  I got them in 1994.  14 years ago.  Hm, times flies when you're having fun.

"Wait," I wanted to say.  "Want to know how new these shoes are?  I got them the year that you were born."  But he was already gone.

I think time just keeps going faster and faster the older you get.

While our bodies go slower and slower ....
