a year ago i was young for my age.
now i'm old for my years.
my, how time flies when it's artificially accelerated.
it was a year ago, see, that i tore my ACL, which led to a couple surgeries, which led to a dramatic change in lifestyle.
weights and basketball and general knuckleheadedness have been replaced by walks and yoga and a bosu trainer. the knuckleheadedness remains constant.
the 9 to 5 desk has been replaced by a sit-stand work station, at which i never sit. I no longer own a pair of basketball shoes. and my clothes have been replaced by the wardrobe of someone significantly less corpulent than i.
the upside, however, is that my knee is now a more dependable predictor of rain than the weather channel.
I think the changes were long overdue, and will be to my benefit for the long haul.
but I miss the old normal.
