Leaning on something
You all know I broke my foot. This led the doctors to give me various assistive devices, including a cane and a walker--not simultaneously, the walker came first.
I can now report that walking with a cane makes you look ten years older. Instantly, even if you have just undergone a facelift. A walker adds another ten years, plus the suspicion that you are either deaf or senile. So people enunciate carefully, making sure you are looking them straight in the face. Ugh!
