January 17 — I’M AN OLD, OLD MAN, Merle Haggard (1974)

imageToday I’m getting around like the old guy younger men mock. Friday night, while I was lying on Luke’s floor on my stomach, he jumped and landed on my lower back. That’s not unusual — soreness is part of being an older dad, I’ve learned — but unlike most other times, I wasn’t expecting it and didn’t brace. Yesterday’s long run probably didn’t help, and today I’m hobbling around like a man 30 years older.
