These last few Sundays, my friend and I have been going to a brunch at this steak and egg diner. 

There was one chef I noticed from the first day. He reminded me of Jiro in Jiro dreams of Sushi. Same look, height and style. I knew he wasn't a young man but he was agile and focused at his job that required him to working standing all day.

I was curious about his age. So I asked the owner - but he didn't know. So I approached the chef himself and asked him. He had the most genuine smile as he told me that he was 70.

I knew he wasn't young but I didn't expect 70. I told him I hope I am as strong as him at 70. 

After few weeks, we returned to the same spot, My friend tells me that the man probably didn't remember me. But I didn't think so.
So I got his attention said hi. Not only did he remember me, he remembered on which side I came in to the diner and exactly what I ordered. 

He was a 70 year old man with the body of a young man and the mind of a ninja.

    @keni I would like to have a 70 year old ninja make me breakfast and tell me a story or two.

    @keni Something to shoot for. Age is just a number. I've seen people younger than I am using those motorized carts at Walmart. There's no way all of them had physical disabilities.

      @brandonwilson - Definitely a goal worth chasing. I am a fan of having a fit body but that mind - that sharp mind just makes everything in life extra pleasant.
