In a collection of strips from Doonesbury called The Weed Whisperer two middle-aged boomers sit on a park bench.
“You know what really sucks about aging?” says the first man. “Pretty much everything”, the second man replies.
MAN #1: “Yeah, but the worst part is being invisible.”
MAN #2: “Not another cashier?”
MAN #1: “Waitress …. didn’t even look at me.”
MAN #2 “I assume she was hot … If she weren’t, would you have noticed her not noticing you? …. And, honestly, would she have noticed either of us when we WERE young?
MAN #1 “At least, there was a prayer!”
MAN #2: Really? I have no memory of there being a prayer.”
