Hello. Well I suppose being called 'cute', is better than being called a miserable old bat. I have never thought of myself as being cute, but that is how someone described me in a recent comment on my yooootooob channel. I suppose cute isn't so bad, but it was the context in which she used it which shocked me. She said, 'old people are cute'. WHAT !!! Hey you Miss, who are you calling 'old'. I'm not chuffin old, how very dare you. I can tell you now, that I won't be old until I am at least 85, and that is a long way off.
I can stomach being called cute, or dippy, or scatty, or even bonkers. I like being quirky, offbeat, eccentric, or an oddball, they are fine. But calling me OLD, oh no, I can't agree with that. I AM NOT OLD.
In my head I am 27, the age when I started lorry driving. Now 40 years later, I am still confident enough to get in a truck and do it all over again. Not that I want to mind you, but if I did, then I could. I could still rope and sheet a load down on a 40ft trailer. I could still go in a truck stop and chat the blokes up. I could still be one of the lads and have a pint or two.
Time might have moved on, but I haven't. My body is still in good working order, I can think for myself, make decisions, and have a good helping of common sense. And as long as this continues, I will not call myself old.
So, what words would you use to describe yourself? Come on, share. Are you 'cute', or something else? Don't go looking for the comment on yoootooob, I was so shocked I immediately deleted it. OLD indeed, for goodness sake.
Winding down now, getting ready for the big one. I'll show you who's not old, ha ha. Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon.
