My office identified two of my patients this afternoon as spry. They are not much older than I am. I pointed out that we never call 30 year olds as spry. No one would call Lance Armstrong spry. They presumably would call Dnvr Fox spry. I don't know why the whole thing bothers me, but it does. I can handle bifocals, bowel fixation, male-pattern balding and impotence but being called spry might snap my twig.
