Getting Old

I hate getting old. It's crap. Two weeks ago I go a calf strain playing five-a-side and now, last night, I did my hamstring... it really is crap.

Why do we have to spend so much of our lives just deteriorating. Makes me sad.

I am fatter. Get worse hangovers. Uglier too. It's not fair. I want to be 20 years old forever.

Surely that's not too much to ask?

I remember when I was younger I used to wonder why older people used to complain about hangovers, they really never bothered me. Now they seem to be getting worse every weekend. I dread to think what they'll be like by the time I'm 40

Re: Getting Old

I've had loads of football injuries over the years. Most of them came about when I was in my twenties. Touch wood so far I haven't had a single injury in the five years I have been in my 30's. Getting older seems to be doing me good

P.S 'I am fatter. Get worse hangovers. Uglier too'

Go to the gym and stop eating so much, stop drinking and get a nice haircut. Problems solved

...oh and getting older means you can afford to buy and run a 3.2 Brera. Maybe it's not so bad afterall hey?

Re: Getting Old

Well I'm slimmer, fitter and more presentable than I was when I was in my mid-20's. And I can afford my 159. Only real deterioration is my eyesight for reading.

49 on Monday too, so only one year to go 'til the big 5-0.

Forgot - loads of grey hair

Re: Getting Old

Re: Getting Old

Cheaper car insurance - I pay less now (aged 40) for my GTV fully comp. than it cost me to insure my 1100 MK1 escort TPF&T over 20 years ago!
