You're never too old...

Tonight, in the pages of the namethattune community, I was told by someone who had just perused my bio page, that my watch was as old as she was. Hmmm, I promise I only felt old for the few minutes it took a month to pass. Hell, I'm only five and change, in dog years! Anyway, I think I have discovered a good rule of thumb if/when I ever start dating again: Never date any woman younger than my watch. The beauty of this rule of thumb is that it moves as the years advance. As I get older, so too does lower end of the scale advance. Hmm, that should keep me from being a lecherous cradle robber, er, at least it should help me conceal the fact that I am. Heh heh. Incidentally, my watch turns twenty-five on my birthday this year. Heh! Ah yes, gently declining the amorous advances of smitten younger women is how every man wants to spend fantasizes spending the latter three fifths of his life.

Aha, I am (ever so slightly) older than your watch! Teehee!

That's the weird thing about getting older, to me. It's not that I *FEEL* old, but that I suddenly look around and see all these CHILDREN around me. TINY little tykes, so full of naevity and silliness. Only they're driving. And drinking. And voting. And I think... "WHAT?!?! THESE kids?!" And realize "These kids" are 22 or older. *shakes his head*

And then I have to remind myself I'm not exactly one of them anymore.

And then I smile and remind myself that I *CAN* legal date the cuter, female ones if I wanted, though. :-)
