A rut in the road

Another quote from my upcoming book regarding the aging process:

“Until recently, I naively believed the aging process applied to everybody else. Somehow I’d be immune (at least until I retired). Aging was a rut in the road of life everyone else fell into. These ruts were impossible to get out of and led to unintended destinations. I hoped a dog of my own would prevent one of those ruts from claiming me.”
