The world is a strange, scary place to me.
When I was a young(er), single man, I had time to meet and discuss the articles of the world which interested me. I knew then the latest “lingo” and catch phrases, simply by exposure to people who were younger and more “hip” (or is that “hep”? I can never tell) than I. I kept up with popular culture and I was able to converse with normal people in a reasonable way. It was an interesting time.
Things have changed for me. Not so much the world, I think.
