On Being A Waiter, Humble Pie & Getting Old

I urged him to be careful of his words, telling him that once you begin to speak on what you won't do, life will sometimes humble you (slap you) to a place where you wind up doing exactly what you proclaimed you wouldn't.

The boy shot me a casual glance and told me I was old.
