"What's your job?"
"What's the hardest-"
Old joke I know, but it's the story of my life. I always seemed to be just a few beats off. When I should have been just an innocent child, I was pretty much forced to grow up and look after my mother.
My teenage years were mostly spent working, while the time I was supposed to be building a career were just a hedonistic haze.
And now I finally find love. At sixty. While she's a dozen years older than me.
Still, you have to laugh. I could have missed entirely.
