More proof that I'm getting old

I will be turning 43 in a couple of months, an event which I have no problem with whatsoever. Being Chinese, I hide my age extremely well (it's no wonder that, according to an old Doonesbury strip, us Chinese are "an extremely tricky race"). I'm moderately fit, having to go to the gym a couple of times a week and teach tai chi on most Monday, Wednesdays and Saturdays. And I pretty much had my middle-age crazy phase when I turned 30.

But as I get older, I'm finding out that my body doesn't want to do things. I twisted my ankle about three months ago and it has still yet to be completely healed. I caught a cold a few weeks back which took about a week for me to recover from it (whereas it used to take two days to get over it). And I get tired easier these days.

The real kicker for me took place over the weekend. My friend Joe Hoss and I decided to head down to Casino Niagara to watch the De La Hoya/Mayweather fight on Saturday night as it was billed as the last great boxing match. We decided to head down for 9 pm, gamble a bit and then sit and watch the fight, which was showing all over the place.

Everything goes off as planned. I drop some money playing the slots (unable to find a machine with bonuses to my liking), had a couple of drinks and then we managed to find a couple of chairs in the middle of the casino to watch the fight, which finally started around 11:30. So here we are, watching this fight right in the heart of the casino, which is really hopping and it happens: I nodded off during half of the fight!!

It is now official: I am now getting too old.
