Once upon a time, they were (like you) young, and invincible…. But time stands still for no-one, and gravity pulls at different parts of the body gradually creating saggy-baggy bits and deep wrinkles. The desire to be agile and supple is still there, but the body refuses to cooperate. The bones begin to creak and groan.
