A young man, recently graduated from college, defined 40 as middle age.  He
arrived at this conclusion by deducing that we live to be approximately 80,
therefore 40 is the mid-point.  After listening to the conversation between
him and a forty-something female, I just had to chime in.  I explained that
his middle age had already passed him by at about age 13 since it was
obvious his 40+ co-worker was going to kill him if he didn't hush up.

So, no George, I don't think you're old.  You can out-work most of the young
folk around these days, and have a great time doing it.  My Mother can
out-work  my 13 and 14 year old nephews, and the only ones that come close
to keeping up with her are my brother, sister-in-law and me.

And I've got to be having a really good day.
