What do you wrestle with the most these days, as you get older, getting some clothes off or on, or both, summertime (a sweaty tight t-shirt?) and wintertime?

For me, it's socks, and secondly, pants.

One of these days I'll finally realize I'm 60, and not 20 anymore. One day this stunt of trying to balance myself on one leg, while trying to pull a pants leg and sock off, I'm going to topple sideways, frontwards, backwards and knock my head against something.

This long summer spoils you here. No hassle sandals, shorts. And then comes the torture of donning more clothes in winter.

A sweaty sports bra is the worst. I have been stuck many times in one after a good workout when my arms are exhausted and I just don't have the energy to pull it over my head. Always entertaining.

Agreed - you can dislocate a shoulder!

Just wrestling with life in general is tough enough today, much less trying to get dressed. Tying a tie correctly is probably the most difficult.

Damn all boots!!! Nothing seems to fit anymore. Doesn't matter if cost $200 or $20 it's just not fitting right. The heels wear in the back and you're forced to put screws at strategic locations to prevent the uneven wear which causes pain up and down the legs.
A constant frustration for us older working guys it seems.

So far it's just been one pair of boots that lace up high. They're hard to get on and hard to get off. I can still stand on one leg and put on a pair of socks or pants without losing my balance. I think ice skating and roller skating once a week has done wonders for my balance.

Simple, I just won't buy anything that's hard to put on or take off. I never unbutton my shirts and blouses, I just pull them off and on over my head.
