You know you're getting older when little niggles and aches take far, far longer to go away. I have a sore shoulder. It doesn't sound like very much but I am finding it terribly bothersome. It is only with a painful shoulder that you'll realise just how bloody heavy your arm is.
It serves me right for not sympathising appropriately with Pearlie and her sore neck.
She told me she had a pain in her neck and all could I think was, well - you're a pain in mine. My just desserts are here.
