Well, perhaps it's a bit further below the surface today.

I certainly don't despise people at any age. But when I meet many people my own age I have a tendency to call them "ma'am" or "sir", and see them as an authority figure. Not all of them, certainly. But it's always a shock to see people who look quite matronly, and discover they are my age. Thank heavens no one seems to see me as an authority figure.

I don't think of myself as an idealist. Just someone who tends to hoard scarce resources. I have three diet cherry cokes left, and can't seem to find more. I sure do worry about how I use those three diet cherry cokes than I did when my pantry was full of them. Well, I'm not exactly down to three diet cherry cokes of life, but neither do I have a pantry full. I get angry with myself for squandering them.
