Feeling old

Yesterday, I was thinking of going for a bike ride, but then I got lazy and didn't go. Today my legs are sore. Yes, it's gotten to the point that the mere thought of exercise wears me out.

There is an old tree in my village riverside. Glorious and beutifull. That tree got a dignity that i dont see in other trees. With roots penetrated deep and lushfull leaves dancing in the sparkling sun. The tree contributes to the village by it's cheerfullness and dignity even in old age like no other.

Also remember that fine wine and cheese improves with age... they're just less prone to exercise.

But even a fine wine can go bad if it ages too long...

OK, I've got some good options here. I can become a tree, a fine wine, or possibly cheese. Keep 'em coming!

Also, if any women want to post that the best lovers are all over 40 ... you,know, even just out of pity ... that would really help a lot!

1-2 weeks back, I gone to a saloon to cut my hair, An old man were sitting in the chair, Barber shaves his chin, It was a quite complex job for the barber to shave his face, with lot of wrinkles. But after shaving old man shows places in his face that's not properly done, old man did it 2-3 times.

I wonder who the hell this old man going to show his face in old age? Desire will not end in old age or even in last day!

There was a report on TV last week stating that men improve with age and get more desirable to women.
Women OTOH get less desirable.

So there is still hope.

Men become more desirable with age? Or their money and status become more desirable with age?

I am not saying all women are materialistic. I can see that men's knowledge, wisdom, and maturity become desirable with age.

Sounds like that TV report was researched by an older single man. No surprise that some older men are single. It's hard to find a mate with your head up your a**.

Sheriffs, forgive me if that violates "Be Nice". I'm just tired of watching women over 30 hate themselves because they think all men want them to look and act like 18 year olds. I'm just grateful I found a nice guy to marry who doesn't subscribe to that BS.

Dont bother my English. Only make sure you get the meaning. If that's also not possible, let me know, I'll start new thread called 'Teach me English'

Poets often call teenage kids as butterflies. Are they really butterflies? Or any old butterfly here?

To carry the analogy, I'd say teenagers are caterpillars. In them, you can begin to see what they might become as adults, but not until they go into the cocoon of college and work and independence do they really become the person they're going to be.

Personally, although being a teenager and young adult was fun, I prefer where I am now. You don't really live until you stop spending your time trying to impress other people. I'm sure there are many people who learn this in their teens and early 20s, but the social pressure is definitely greater during those years. I needed to live through a terrible boss and a worse boyfriend before I could figure out who I was. Those things take time.

Just teasing - sorry if I offended you. Just that a "Saloon" is where we go to drink booze. A "Salon" is where you go to get your hair done, & other personal care stuff...

Kinda funny, I thought...

Yes. All ages got it's own pleasure.

And sorrows.

Not wishing to offend but.........

I was always told you are as old as the woman/man you feel!!!

Luckily my wife is younger than me - but I still don't get a feel

(3 boys under the age of 8 may be the reason though!)

No offence intended, and I apologise if this offends anyone, but we English have a strange sense of humour.

Good job this forum is for drivel....

ps To my wife "I love you! "
kids "you too "

Good point, and it reminds me of a quotation I just read:

"Wherever there are rich men trying not to feel old, there will be young girls trying not to feel poor." -- Julie Burchill

Now, if I were only rich.
