What are you talking about, lady?
Thanks my dear lilith don't think it applies though.. 'cause after 40, "young" is a matter of opinion..

I'll take the "in future and in intentions" though, that's pretty neat.

Being old is cool because you can go to the cinema watching film remakes and say: "damn, the original was waaaay better".

(still haven't gone over Transformers...)

Re: Being old is cool because....

Being old is cool because once you get there, you realise you're still young.

Being old is cool, cos there is so much in life that you just don't give a schitt about.

Re: Being old is cool because....

You can be really old at 30 and a yoooooooooooung at 50 !
Depends what you're living through, how you feel inside.

We went to Rome for a week, and as we were wandering around sight-seeing we crossed paths with an elderly bag lady.
She had an incredible smile and light in her eyes. She looked at my husband with a twinkle and a grin and exclaimed: tu mi piace ! (I like the looks of you) and blew him a kiss, and giggled on her way.

age is an attitude, as they say..

being old is not cool, i prefer to be young :d
attitude is everything! If you think you are old, you are. I'm mid 50's and still play hard like i'm mid 20's. Wake up the next day and can't move, but i'll be damned if i gonna be old.

I would imagine Bertrand (who is a Swiss national, who's learnt English) intended to write insipid - and missed an "i" in typing.

[If he didn't intend to, then he should have]
