The good thing about getting older is that there is less weirdness and fewer surprises.
You hug a friend in a train station in a city where you’ve never seen each other before. It’s not weird, because heck, by this time, you can’t even remember where you knew each other from anyway.
There are fewer surprises because your memory is absent.
Oil spill? No surprise there–you’re not really sure if it’s a new one or the same one from before.
Ear buds not working in one ear? You’ve probably just gone deaf in one ear and forgot that you went deaf. Clearly nothing to worry about.
Aliens abducting you? For all you know, it happens every night. Why worry?
