I'm aging and I can't get up

My girlfriend told me about this cartoon while we devoured breakfast together this morning. We had just come from a strength training session and were talking about the aging process. Suddenly in our 30s it seemed that our bodies are changing without our consent.

My 72 year-old mother in-law exists somewhere in between the last two stages. She will readily tell you that she used to be beautiful and more than one man asked her to marry him. I've seen photos of her from Vietnam and it's true! She was pretty and youthful even after her fifth child was born. All I know is this ajumma will hold onto stage 2 as long as possible.
