Hearing someone say “I’m old and can’t be bothered” Say “No, No, No”.
You are old and wise. Much has happened to increase your wisdom of life. Many are the things about living that younger ones can learn. In your past there is much useful knowledge about living to learn and have lives enhanced.
The old one is likely to say “No, No, No. I have nothing to say of value”. They are wrong. Much of value can be said and passed down, why even talking of events that have happened can often be heard as a good new pointer.
Gossip though about things happening now, and whilst a valid but chit chat part in all similar conversations, goes along with those valuable events of the past.
Go along with your talking but never say about a subject “I can’t be bothered” as you have much to offer O’ Wise Old One.
