when you can't stop yourself pointing out spelling mistakes and missing apostrophes.

I hereby claim to be the youngest ever adopter of long johns.

When I was 14 -15, I had a Saturday outdoor market job, selling underwear for the older generation. When winter hit, I decided to buy a set of thermal long -johns, and see if the old folks were fooling themselves into buying extra layers.

They were right.

I still manage to step out without a coat but wearing a thick jumper (the very word ages me).

If it rains I have my pac-a-mac (Yeah grandad!).

Being prepared confirms my advanced years - like I give a stuff.

Without going into too much detail I can vouch for this.

Just this week, my face has been less than 6 inches away from another elderly mans ********, hanging quite freely through some ill-fitting boxers.

I should add that this was not through choice/hedonism.
