At the age of 20, I was a Young Fogy.
Now that I am 56, I discover to my horror that I am becoming an Old Fogy.
One symptom of this is what The Greaseman used to call "geezing" (the
gerund for what old geezers do - they geeze). Any sentence that begins
"Thirty years ago, when I was..." or "I remember when..." or "Led
Zeppelin..." should alert the speaker to the fact that he/she is geezing.
The cure for that, of course, is another cup of Maple Mead.
