    Talking Are you saying that to console me?

    Hello~ Can you help me say this naturally please?

    A: I these days often lose stuffs and forget things.
    Phew... I think I got old...

    B: Yeah, Same here. When people get old they do like that.
    That's natural. Don't too much care about it.

    A: ⓐ Are you saying that to console me?
    ⓑ Are you saying that to comfort me?
    It makes me feel more glumpy man.

    A: These days I keep forgetting things and losing stuff. I must be getting old.

    B: Yeah. Same here. Old people do things like that. It's natural. Don't worry about it. [Careful - "ageist" statement!]

    A: Are you just saying that to comfort me? It just makes me feel even more glumpy/grumpy [nice word, glumpy], man.
