Last month I wrote a column about how to be a geezer. Within hours hordes of geezers galloped out of the woodwork. They reacted to my column. They contacted me. We had a gathering online. We had joke fests and laughs about geezer-hood.
I looked up geezers in Mary Stobie’s New World Dictionary. Definition: (noun) “Geezers are an older person with an attitude. A geezer can be a man or a woman if he or she is older than dirt, playful, outspoken and ornery.”
My advice to geezers is to admit we have foibles. Let’s not hide our foibles, but rather celebrate them. Let’s ramp our foibles up.
If you’re a cautious person, and you want to have more fun — join the geezer club. Here’s how to do it.

Mary Stobie might be a geezer, because it takes one to know one. She is an author and a syndicated columnist. Stobie welcomes your comments and observations of geezers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
