When I was 10, they were nice uncles;
When I was 20, they were dirty old men;
When I was 30, they were still dirty old men;
When I am above 40, I am their potential life partner!
OMG, that’s the realisation that dawned on me. These few days, I had been hanging around at the Penang Youth Park because my kids are so into skate-boarding.
OMG, help me!!!!!
At that hour (after 3pm), lots and lots of retirees will be there. I don’t know why but when men reached mid-life as in retired, their spouses do not follow them. Probably dead or out playing mahjong?
So, these big, ole boys will hang around in packs and boast the day away. In their loudest voice. Like how many hills they can climb or what supplements they take to make them stronger etc.
Unfortunately, the big, ole girls (as in grandmas) do not do their line dancing (puke!) at that hour. So, besides the monkeys at the park, I am one of the few female species hanging around the place. No other things to entertain them and hence….. (you imagine yourself la, I cannot write them out, too geli/iccky)
*Making mental note to follow my atm EVERYWHERE when he retires. Lucky, he retires at 60 yrs old.*
*sobs* One more day and I am over the hill and down the valley of midlife!
