Old Man

My mother has a routine of going to the gym early in the morning, when the only other people there are quite squarely in their golden years---even the lifeguard at the pool is a man of 80. He told her this story: "I recently got a pacemaker, and I felt so vigorous and full of energy. And I thought that I had fallen newly in love with my wife again, because when I saw her, I felt my heart stir in my chest. Ah, but I found out that my pacemaker was just out of whack, so I got it fixed."
