What is it with growing old that unimportant mundane shit becomes so fascinating?

Like timing the mailman or questioning why this week the garbage truck came from the opposite side of the street than it did last week.

Oh and what age after retiring does a couch become a Davenport?

A Davenport or a Chesterfield? Lol

I think it's just a matter of having more time on your hands and noticing these little things that were once taken for granted. My parents pay attention to local government now more than they ever used to. 🤔
My mail is coming earlier again, finally and the damn garbage pick up is late 👩‍🦳 I don't know about your davenport 🛋 is that when it goes on the porch?

[@868864,HannahSky] Are you making fun of porch couches?
[@521796,MethDozer] I just wouldn't sit on one 🛋 without a towel

Oh my gosh, I'm still trying to get used to the couch being a sofa! Don't think I'll ever get to davenport!

As far as that goes, I've never been anywhere in Iowa 😏.

You have a recliner already and sleep with an electric heater by your feet. You wear a knitted cardigan with big buttons so they're easier to do. You don't know how much, but you make old man noises when you move. And you've started to walk with your hands clasped behind your back. Not because you're used to being tied up and cuffed. But because it helps you balance while you walk.

Youre welcome 😌

[@401815,KaliKali] You never heard old people call a couch that?

[@521796,MethDozer] No. I thought it was some WASPy New England word
*punches you in the leg* Just is. 🤷‍♀️
