I'm not quite sure what other people see as sure signs that they're getting older. Is it how many wrinkles they've got? The fact that their back is constantly aching, and they make that groaning sound when they stand up?
Or perhaps it's that their hair has started turning grey, or their eyesight is failing, or their memory is gradually getting . . . what's the word? No, it's gone. Hell, it might even be the incontinence knickers.
All I know is that I don't care about any of that stuff. Well, OK, maybe the incontinence knickers. But the rest of it doesn't bother me in the slightest.
