Is 'graceful aging' an oxymoron?


I have friends telling stories about their grannies running around in sport shoes and watching MTV, young at heart like when they were 20. Except they're 70. What about the Stones? They committed every kind of excess imaginable (and — I'm sure — a few that could surprise my imagination) and yet they're still able to bounce around the stage for two hours straight, while the messages I got from the elders is both scary and pretty straightforward: aging is God damn awful.

Is there any decent explanation for this?

This seems either a big sales promotion or a Russian roulette, depending on the side you're looking from. Although we're young and prefer looking the other way.
