The saying goes that youth is wasted on the young. Oh dear, a blogmate inspired this post and I have forgotten who, or is that whom. God forbid that I had my present head on youthful shoulders. I am thinking megalomaniac. There are very good reasons why youth is wasted on the young. They would just kill themselves if they were wise enough to know what was to come.
Youth are to be physically admired and sometimes to be admired intellectually. Among the dross of the average, there are some very clever and articulate young people out there, with the total environmental betterment of the human race in mind. Chainsaw Teen Niece is one such person. She doesn't see the bigger picture. She just wants to help the earth and its critters survive, in her own way. I just loves 'em for their passion.
I am totally off where I meant to go with this post. Ok, youth are to be physically admired. When I am sitting somewhere people watching, my score is about one in ten, that is one in ten of youngish people I think that I really like the look of and would like to get to know better. Mostly they are male, but there is the odd female.
I am off topic again. I am avoiding something. Why? Could it be that I may offend?
Another saying is that, While the youth have a duty to expose their bodies, older people have a duty to cover theirs up. Women are perhaps the worst offenders but men aren't far behind.
Our ageing faces and hands we must and should expose but we can cover some of the ageing skin, flabby arms, wrinkled and sun damaged cleavage, stick insect/bulging with cellulite legs, calloused feet with yellow fossilised toe nails .
Have I spoilt what you planned to wear tomorrow? Don't worry, I have three pair of Speedos of different colours and I'm thinking perhaps it is time to switch to shorts for swimming.
And if you think, screw that arrogant queen. I'll wear what I want, then good on you. I admire your confidence.
