Wow! You really had me going for it, you sly dog. I was thinking, "Really? 53? Really?" I was also wanting to clobber Danny for making it all about him, which he wisely rectified. A tender--and for many of us--frightening piece of writing with a satisfying and unsuspecting twist ending. Great job!

awww ...you disappointed me with the twist...I was so happy for them! Excellent writing though, held my attention from the first word to the last!

i have always enjoyed using the twist of "watching" a dream and then waking up. you did a good job of engaging us, and then taking us somewhere else.

Very cute! Being in your age group, I could see the mortification of your children ahead - what?? You have SEX?? LOL

I knew something had to be up, because I hadn't gotten to the 'phew' part, so the ending was a good twist, good writing.
