Tom Pepper Inserts Himself into Great Works of Art

In entering his later fifties, I could not help but notice a distinct turn in Tom Pepper's demeanor. He became withdrawn, contemplative and taken to mumbling. Tom, as well as I, was aware that total testosterone levels fall at an average of 1.6% per year whilst free and bioavailable levels decline by 2%–3% per year.

"My days of posturing are over," he remarked one day and adjusted his bifocals.

"Yeah. . ." I hoped that would be the case, but wasn't counting on it.
