Ode to Oats

I woke up super sore this morning. Before you think that it’s because I really rocked it hard at the gym the day before, don’t be fooled. I’ve been slowly jogging, trying to carefully work my ankle up to my previous level of fitness.

Nope, I was sore for one reason alone: I’m getting older. And before you start telling me that this theory is hogwash, let me share with you the headlines from a magazine that Matty B recently purchased for me.

“Vegan menus for adults 51+”
“Vegetarian Independent Living”
“Quick and Easy Dishes for Seniors”

Naturally, it has made me wonder if he’s pulling my leg when he tells me that he likes my gray hairs.

The next step, of course, is to ask the gods of the internet, because they know everything. Thankfully, according to them, my real age is 28.7. Phew!

  1. Mmm oats are my #1 favourite thing for weekday breakfasts. I guess I’m already in the reverse aging direction? 😉 lol
