Different people mark transitions differently. When I turned 21, I transited to legal. Exciting, but no big deal. When I turned 23, I transited to married. A very big deal! When I turned 40, I transited to middle age, at least chronologically. No big deal. When I turned 55, I transited to retired. A big deal. When I turned 62, I transited to government assisted. No big deal. Next year, I will transit to Medicare. A big deal. Each of these transitions was/will probably marked by a milestone event, as well it should be. Now, however, we need to get real! The most important transition that faces me now is...shorts or sweats?! Then, the question: good shorts/sweats, or grubs? The first choice is made simple by the calendar and the thermometer. If the day falls between March and November and the temperature is 40 or above: Shorts. If not, sweats. From November through February, the question becomes; what color? You have to understand, in either case, I have saved/worn either piece of mentioned wearing apparel since I transited to middle age. Do the math! Comfort or class; that's the question. Tonight we celebrate Aunt Edith's 95 birthday. We're taking her out for supper. I am wearing my GOOD gray sweats with a black turtleneck and a gray sweater. I look mahvelous! Hopefully, I will transit from hungry to full. And look good doing it! Be comfortable in all your transitions, and know you are loved!
