I wish somebody could define "old" - is it attitude, aptitude, mentality, capacity??. .. I suppose one good thing about youth.. IT ALL GETS OLD!!!!1
I think "old" is mainly a state of mind. A mates father is 64 and he is OLD - listens to Radio 3 and 4 - drives like an old codger and dresses like one - complete with the hat.
Another bloke I know is 65 and has a stunning 24 yr old girlfriend who has been with him for 7 years - he runs around like a lunatic and listens to rave and house music - she can't keep up with him because she is 24 going on 90 and he's 65 going on 15.
Maybe it's just the old saying "you are only as old as the girl that you....."
