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!
