    You don't need to watch your feet that closely if you notice the floor in front of you.

    Your first sentence emphasizes that some seniors should not be trying to walk around.

    Do I have sympathy for someone who gets hurt? Usually, I do. However, I'm going to lose a little (if not all) of that sympathy when they try to blame someone else when they could have prevented it themselves without having to take any major precautions.

    Well, it's a funny thing about peripheral vision: it tends to diminish over time -- especially when someone is in a store looking for something on a shelf that may be at or above her eye level.

    You should print that out and save it for when you're 75 and hobbling around with cataracts in your eyes. I'm sure you'll see the humor in it then.
