Old Man?!

Oliver Wendell Holmes: "A person is always startled when he hears himself seriously called an old man for the first time."


  1. Yup! And when presenting oneself at the cinema box office or a restaurant where they do reduced prices for seniors, and the staff immediately "know" one IS a senior without having to ask.

  2. I may be senior, but I'd still look up your skirt!

    (Oops, that's a "dirty old man", isn't it?)

    Can't win. Sigh... Listen, just show me your best panties and get it over with, I can take it!

  3. luckily my kids have been calling me that for years so I'm used to it.


Abandon hope, all ye who enter here! (At least put on your socks and pants.)
