This past weekend I was socializing with a group of friends and the discussion turned toward aging. Someone mentioned middle age which then led to another friend asking "What is middle aged exactly?" Each of us threw in our own two cents worth, and none of our answers was the same.
It occurred to me that this is a question that bears a changing answer over the course of time. Now that people are commonly living well into their 90's, we might need to reconsider what we once thought of as middle aged.
The next time you're out with a group of people, ask this question - the answers that follow might surprise you.
