My friend J. (the one who speaks of stones in shoes) shared another one of her sayings today at brunch:
You’re only as old as you look.
This made laugh as my friend P. (also at brunch) thinks I am obsessed with getting older. Perhaps I am. Or maybe I’m just more vocal about the inevitable.
J’s right though, I most certainly feel my age most days. What with my aching knees, failing eyesight and myriad aches and pains, but I look a lot younger than I feel. And according to J., that’s what counts. Or, at least, I think that’s what she meant.
