Planning for old age or agelessness?

A short time ago my wife and I were shopping in a grocery store, and she asked me to get her some bubble bath. When I asked a clerk where I might find it, he told me and then asked, "Aren't you a little old for bubble bath?" I thought a moment and laughingly replied, "No, I am just right." He smiled and agreed.

Each of us has a different concept of what "older" or "mature" means. Probably from the time of young adulthood we begin to be more aware of people's ages. We read about how to deal with aging, and we develop ideas as to how we fit into the concepts held about certain age-groups.
