What elderly women inevitably say to me when they meet me in person

"I didn't recognize you.  You don't look like your picture in the paper.  That's an awful picture.  I'm serious."

I really, really like that apparently you get to say whatever you want to say as you age.  That's awesome, don't you think?

You get to say what you want, and ... you get to be wrong. Nothing wrong with your picture.

They probably don't see well anymore. You're lovely in your byline pic AND in person.

My grandmother-in-law once sent me an email that said she really really loved SOME of my work. I love how honest the elderly are.

Yes! This! I feel it already. The older I get the less I care about what people think. I guess when you're really old, you can say ANYTHING.

I can't wait.
