For some, it’s the first gray hair. For others, the first fine lines around the eyes. The signs of aging are many and various, ranging from the involuntary grunt that escapes when you get up after sitting on the floor to purchasing a rug for the first time to having carte blanche in all doughnut purchasing decisions.
But you know when it really hits home? This fact that you are no longer the same carefree young thing you once were? It’s when you hear yourself telling your friend with genuine excitement and delight that you will be getting your grout cleaned next month. Grout.
In my defense, it really needs a good cleaning.
