Like it was yesterday. In fact, and this is a true indication of ageing, probably better than I can remember what happened yesterday. :(

You are very, very young.

Nah, feeling older now there are rugby players and whatnot doing proper things and I'm not!

I am actually someone who prefers to act my shoe size, not my age!!

Watching Call The Midwife the other night and realising the era in which it is set is not the dark distant past but the era into which I was born. :(

If you remember when Pet Shop Boys - It's a Sin was number one, that was when I was born.


1987. I'd been divorced for seven years and was resident with my second live-in girlfriend.

If you are unsure whether you are old or not, ask an eighteen year old.

They will be confused that there could be any doubt and then:
a. Tell you that you are old.
or
b. Humour you. Because you are a grown-up asking them a question.

I was telling a couple of students about Fermat's Last Theorem and that it was only proven recently in 1994. Their response was that they didn't think that was recent since that was the year they were born. :(

To be fair, he lives in Lincolnshire. He has to post his replies to the railway station. Then the telepgraph office converts it to e-mail.
