Old Man: [sighs]
Therapist: So John, tell me what’s bothering you.
Old Man: I just feel so old, so disconnected from the young people of the world today.
No matter what I try to say, they don’t listen to me. It’s almost as if I’m trying to speak to them through some invisible boundary that separates the generations.
Therapist: Please, tell me more about this boundary. Do you think it’s a psychological boundary that you have created in your own mind?
Old Man: I’d say it’s more physical than psychological. Also, it fogs up when I speak too close to it.
Therapist: John, are you referring to the front window of your house?
Old Man:…Why, yes. Yes I am.
