The ages of man

or I suppose to avoid being sexist this should really be called The ages of men and women-oops should that not be women first but thats a sexist remark in its self!

Anyway when we were young children we all played games pretending to be a grown up. As the years went on we grew up and pretended to be older than we actually were to get to see x rated films and enter that inner sanctum of human life-the pub. None of this however stopped us from trying to get child fares on public transport did it!

As the years went on a lot of us lived by the maxim of that well known advert 'act your shoesize not your age', if that were true I am still in puberty---if only!

Even to this day it still goes on- I had my hair cut today and was given a pensioners discount! This caused me to stop and think (extremely fleetingly) should I be honest and tell the truth or should I celebrate my good fortune and spend the balance in the pub. Not going to say what I chose but lets just say that it quenched my thirst!

However it did give me time to ponder this- I am not 60 until November but please tell me I am not that old-----------someone please!

As everyone keeps telling me "Age is only a Number" and you wont be a pensioner for a little while yet ~ isn't it odd how we like to lie about our age at different stages of our lives ~ Ally x

I was 58 last month but after falling down the stairs, while I was asleep and having to be stretchered off to A & E in the middle of the night, I am feeling a bit old right now!! But no 60 isn't old look at Pamela Stephenson in Strictly. xx
