I'm Not Old, Just Older

They say you are only as old as you feel, well I don't, I say you are only as old as the person you feel. Mainly because then it makes perfect sense to surround yourself with 18 year old beauties - HA perfectly logical. Howver, there are some benefits that come with getting older.
  • When you make mistakes you can actually explain why you screwed up
  • You don't have to show ID to get what you want, i.e. alcohol etc
  • Sex lasts longer than 30 seconds
  • Enjoyment comes in many forms from eating with friends, reading a book or curling up in front of the TV.
  • It no longer involves trying to get laid as many times as possible in one night
  • You can actually put forward sound reasoning to explain why you did something rather than muttering "cos I did"
  • You may actually know what you want but you definitely know what you don't want
  • Finding long-lost friends actually means people you haven't seen for years

Of course, there is a downside

  • Running anywhere seems far too much of a chore
  • Springing out of bed is not really an option any more
  • Watching your fave TV programme can become "He's dead, she's dead, he's almost dead"
  • Shopping for clothes actually becomes more difficult as what is "in" looks dreadful on you
  • Attending funerals becomes more frequent
  • Spur of the moment ideas actually require planning, where to put the kids, how to pay for it etc

However, on the whole one can't complain - let's face it no-one would hear you if you did.

so true my friend!!!!

Finding long-lost friends actually means people you haven't seen for years

I did just that in recent months. it's been 21 years since we'd seen each other! He's absolutely wonderful and was happy to hear from me! While we are about 3 hours away from each other, we've already hooked up for a visit!!

I'll be another year older on Thursday and not to fight the age, but relish in it!!! so,far it seems to be working for me!!!!

Hola Amiga,

Also true is that you realise what friendship truly is.

Another year older, another year wiser !

As a Goth, I should hate Bon J but how can you argue with lyrics like "I like the bed I'm sleeping in - It's just like me, it's broken in - It's not old - just older".

I wish you... cumpleaños felices y adora para siempre

kimmyk dijo...

Sex lasts longer than 30 seconds? Yeah? I guess that might be due to men popping that little blue pill. Sexxy!!

I think now that I'm forty I'm suppose to speak my mind and not regret it-so far not so much. I tend to think more now before I speak. Maybe that's a sign of maturity, huh??

Grazie, Amico !!!
and it's been great rekindling the old friendship!!! He's wonderful - as are you my friend!

"I like the bed I'm sleeping in - It's just like me, it's broken in - It's not old - just older".

not a fan of bon jovi either...but I like the words!!!
you rock

SpanishGoth dijo...

Kimmy -> I apologise for never having been one of the 30 secs brigade - I adore the female body far too much

Bananas -> fucking hated the bouffanted muppet until I heard "This Left Feels Right" - as a musician, I have respect for anyone who writes and performs their own material. Can check it out Here - sorry not to embed a link etc but far too gothic to be arsing about doing that ;-)

Shaz dijo...

Getting older can also mean learning to like yourself. I love these list posts, they get me thinking (smoke pours from ears as brain goes into melt down!)

Cream dijo...

Tell me, Goth, why is it that now that I am older and supposedly wiser, do I want to do the things I always wanted to do when I was young but did not because of lack of money or the inclination?
The daftest of all is camping in Patagonia!

Have I really grown up?

zoe dijo...

happy birthday.

and your list is so true. i want to know why it takes me 2 days to get over a very late night on the town and why the weather is so important to me. it never used to be.

Tippler dijo...

Well, they say that youth is wasted on the young.

In fact, being wasted is wasted on the young.

People do it SO much better past thirty.

SpanishGoth dijo...

Shaz -> don't know about learning to like yourself, it's more a case of seeing more failings in others

Cream -> Go Patagonia!! (the only other country where Welsh is an official language)

Zed -> happy birthday who? Schumann? Not mine - far too Pisced for that

Tipp -> Glad you're not so twatted to join in - your buddies from the christianity sect have been visiting......CHAMPIONS

DQ -> In your abscence, hope you are able to walk - remember Thursday and our date

Tippler dijo...

Had a very sober night.

Well, I was drunk on luuuurve.

Perfect end to a perfect day (and she stayed over...)

See you Thursday.

Si jeunesse vieillesse pouvait...If young age knew...if old age could...


Tippler dijo...

Oh, by the way. Just responded to Hasta la Pasta in the 'religious' corner...

SpanishGoth dijo...

Tipp -> Well happy - bout time you sorted it out - CHAMPIONS
Oh, and I didn't create the corner, it just kind of happened - bit of an immacculate contraception thing

Sirius -> Welcome, feeling a bit cloudy are we?

Aunty Marianne dijo...

Felices cumpleanos, carino.

I am older too. It only sucks part of the time.

Hi Jennifer and welcome. I don't mind being older - better that than the alternative ;-)
