Old

Use the “show do not tell” rule to describe: She was getting old.

 

“Where are my glasses?!” she muttered.

“On your nose.”

or

She smoothly passed her hand through her hair. It was an all too familiar gesture for me; she always did it when something was on her mind. I loved to watch her gently pull out a single hair, wrapping it and unwrapping it around her finger like a child fiddling with his fingers.

This time, the hair was white.
