You know when you’re old when…..!
you will no doubt have seen all the press coverage of research into people’s perception of different stages of age. Apparently, 58 is now old! Bunkum! Youth finishes at 35! Again, tosh!I’ve seen some 3o somethings who really don’t look young!!
Anyway, to add to the dialogue – you know when you’re old when you have to pay £85.50 to renew a passport!! When did that price hike happen? What happened to the fun in the photo booth when you tried to get into various poses before the flash? I knew I had to keep a straight face for the passport but had planned a ‘smiley one’ for the album. No way! You have one go then 4 of the same come out. I don’t care how old you get, that photo is never a true likeness – right? The only comforting aspect of the whole experience was the lady in the post office confirming that the only change from the old picture was the colour of my hair. So..I’ll take that as a compliment & snub my nose at that ‘old at 58’ nonsense!
