Oldness

Post by Gingerduckii on Sat Jun 05, 2010 12:58 am

Have you ever heard an adult say 'now I know thirty sounds ancient to you...' at any time in your life?

It keeps on being said to me and its happened a lot in the past few years during school, since teachers stopped seeing me as a kid and more of a young student i think.

But everytime i heard it, even though it's rhetoric I always wanted to say 'no i don't think that's ancient at all' because I don't see it as ancient. Older, yes, but not ancient.

But what is old really? To me it's 70's/80's at the earliest, my own parents are just hitting 50 but i don't see them as old. It did kinda come as a shock when I thought about the fact that my dad was 50 but he doesn't seem old to me...or is that just because I see him every day? My nana's...two more people in my life that I don't necessarily see as old yet they're both over 70 years old.

Does anybody else feel the same or is it just me??

I have like, no old people in my life. My mother's 35, my Bamma is 52, my GreatGrandma is 74ish. Well, maybe my GreatGrandma is old.

I don't get oldness. I come from a long, long, long, long line of teenage pregnancies. I know I spelt that wrong, but my Mozilla isn't working. -facepalm-. I don't really see a lot of "old" people. So, in my mind, the world is a young place.

Aline (GGm) had Bamma at 16, Bamma had mom at 18, Mom had me at 17. I will not make the mistake.

People are old when they stop being young.
My little sister is old because she behaves like an old woman at times, whereas my dead grandad was never old because he was too immature and what not.

I count oldness depending on behaviour more than anything.
