    How do you know?

    Devereaux staggered home very late after another evening with his
    drinking buddy, Landry. He took off his shoes to avoid waking his
    wife, Betty Lou.

    He tiptoed as quietly as he could toward the stairs leading to
    their upstairs bedroom, but misjudged the bottom step. As he
    caught himself by grabbing the banister, his body swung around and
    he landed heavily on his rump. A whiskey bottle in each back
    pocket broke and made the landing especially painful.

    Managing not to yell, Devereaux sprung up, pulled down his pants,
    and looked in the hall mirror to see that his butt cheeks were cut
    and bleeding. He managed to quietly find a full box of Band-Aids
    and began putting a Band-Aid as best he could on each place he saw
    blood.

    He then hid the now almost empty Band-Aid box and shuffled and
    stumbled his way to bed.

    In the morning, Devereaux woke up with searing pain in both his
    head and butt and Betty Lou staring at him from across the room.

    She said, 'You were drunk again last night weren't you?'

    Devereaux said, 'Why you say such a mean thing?'

    'Well,' Betty Lou said, 'it could be the open front door, it could
    be the broken glass at the bottom of the stairs, it could be the
    drops of blood trailing through the house, it could be your
    bloodshot eyes, but mostly ..... it's all those Band-Aids stuck on
    the hall mirror.

    Getting old is inevitable....Growing old is optional
