Who's Old?

Morning All,

Yesterday I was confronted with the word old. I'm 37, so am I old now or not? What's old? Doesn't one say, "as old as one's veins", but how old are mine??

A friend told me once you start being old when you sigh loudly when sitting down on a couch ( "Aaaaaaaaaaahh" ). Hahaha, it's true try it, I....hmmmm no, never happened to me. Or when you're talking to a sixteen year old, he/she starts laughing and says: " Hahahahaha, what, John Travolta? Slim, singing and dancing? When the hell was that?" ( she didn't like movies anyway, tsss ). Or when you cannot remember more than 3 songs in MTV's top20 chart. Well I remembered one, the new Britney Spears song: simply because it's exactly the same rhythm as Michael Jackson's "In the closet" 10 years ago.

Being "old" today has an advantage. I'm still wearing the same type of trainers than 25 years ago, my good old ( shit, said it again ) Adidas Stan Smith, just today youngsters look at them and shout: "Coooool, where did you buy them, Grandpa?"

Have a nice day, and week,...and month,...and year...sorry years!


Joe leased an apartment and went to the lobby to put his name on his mailbox. While there, an attractive young lady came out of the apartment next to the mailboxes wearing a robe. Joe smiled at the young woman and she started a conversation with him. As they talked, her robe slipped open, and it was obvious that she had nothing else on.

Poor Joe broke out into a sweat trying to maintain eye contact.After a few minutes, she placed her hand on his arm and said, “Let’s go to my apartment, I hear someone coming.”

He followed her into her apartment, she closed the door and leaned against it, allowing her robe to fall off completely. Now nude, she purred at him, “What would you say is my best feature?”Flustered and embarrassed, Joe finally squeaked, “It’s got to be your ears!”

Astounded and a little hurt she asked, “My ears? Look at these breasts,they are full and 100% natural! I work out every day! My butt is firm and solid! Look at my skin no blemishes anywhere! How can you feel the best part of my body is my ears?!”

Clearing his throat, Joe stammered, “Outside, when you said you heard someone coming? That was me.”
