When I Get Older, Losin' My Hair ...

many years from now (do do do do do), I better be able to sleep with whoever I want.

There's a really cool love story on Slate today about an 82-year-old woman and a 95-year-old man who fell in love. And had sex. Gasp.

Evidently, this horrified the man's son so much that he moved his father to another facility, breaking the woman's heart. (The son claims his dad, who has dementia, doesn't remember the woman.)

You have to read the article to form an opinion, but mine is: if they can find love, or 'enjoyment', that late in life, good for them. And if having sex causes either one of them to have a heart attack, well, there are worst ways to go.
