Andy

This is Andy. If you frequent this blog, which I highly doubt you do, then you may recognize him. He has been on here many times before. I usually refer to him as my "old man boyfriend" and this makes most people uneasy. But the truth is I have a soft spot for people who are lonely, and even more so, old people who are lonely. This man, Andy Lum-82 years old, is a darling old man. He grew up in New York and later became a chemical engineer. He likes to tell people he's a rocket scientist. and in a way, I think he is. Over the last two years, Andy and I have gone out to eat at least one day every week. AT LEAST! He use to come over every day wanting to go to lunch or dinner or sometimes both. I used to say no over and over again until I couldn't take his puppy dog face anymore! These days I think his age is catching up with him. It's really depressing actually; to see how he used to be, to what he is now. I know most people are scared of getting older, I on the other hand am very excited about it. I want grey hair and wrinkles right now! But I only recently discovered how getting to the point where you no longer are how you used to be is a pretty sad and scary thing.
