Coming up to the big 4-0 in a few years and starting to feel my age.

Is it all downhill from there or is it true that that's when life begins?

For once, a thread the oldies can relate to. :tongue


Please, no anecdotes beginning with "during the war...".

Age is a number. Try not to let it affect your frame of mind.

Good grief - feeling old at 37? Stop feeling sorry for yourself and get on with life!

Honestly. :rolleyes:

You're only as old as the woman you feel.

Have a mid life crisis, you'll feel a lot better.

Can I just take this moment to point out that as you get older it takes longer to recover from a serious beating than it did when you were younger!

That would explain why my knees hurt and I struggle to touch my toes.

Exactly.

Just wait until you're 55, then you'll have sommat to complain about. :smokin

I think I had a mid-life crisis at the weekend. I managed to stay away from sports car garages until the feeling passed, so I don't think it was the real thing.

During the Boer War, I was saying to Kitchener...

What you need is a proper war.

Them Boers can shoot straight, let me tell you, and they're not armed with sharpened kiwi fruit either.

how about viciously sharp pieces of mango?

Reaching 30 is what upset my life.

40 was a breeze. And indeed, life is great :D
(I got divorced, had my 40th on a far away shore with some drinking buddies, and GF Platypus is in every way wonderful!)

So, for me, life did indeed begin at 40. Frickin' A :D

She'd be breaking him in. Fast tracking experience, he should consider himself lucky that she's deigned to teach him.

Though TBH 37 is a bit old for toyboy status.

Yes, as a man you really need to get the dirty older woman thing over with in your 20s.

Which is why I always administer the beating.

To be fair, those 12 year olds that were outside your shop will recover quite quickly from it.


No, hang on a minute. :tongue

One good thing about getting old is that an ever-increasing proportion of the totty population starts to look appealing.
One bad thing is that your eyesight begins to fail you just when you need it most.

Lady Tester's 40 and more appealing than ever. Monica Bellucci's 46 and yes, I would.

Well, what can I add given the splendid advice provided by others so far.

I remember my late 30's. Disaster time. Mid-life crisis? Sure thing. But now that I'm pushing 80 I'm sort-of getting over it at last. The only thing that really bothers me today is that the structured cobol contracts might come to an end before I do, and just maybe it's a bit late for me to consider cross-training.

I concur with a previous poster who said that as you get older the totty gets more appealing. The good thing about reaching my age is that for some of the younger totty they have visions about wanting to pair up with a sugar daddy so as to inherit a fortune. So before entering into such arrangements I suggest you seriously consider signing a pre-nup agreement, otherwise you might find your cups of tea are tasting a bit funny in the morning.

Oh, and I also suggest that you have your dentist do a good job with your false teeth. It costs a bit, but I've found that the young lasses seem to go for a healthy smile - the fact that you put the gnashers in a glass by the bed each night is something you can keep to yourself, until you've had your wicked way.
