I've Aged! What A Bummer!

It's broken!

There is no doubt in my mind whatsoever.

My 'mojo', if indeed I ever had one, is broken.

My mirror doesn't lie and it's telling me all sort of nasty things.

It says "You've got ... puffy eyes / no hair / jowls / fat / old!" and I hate it.

Yes, I know.  I can hear you all chorusing "Noooooooo!  You are still the handsome (short) hunk you always were", but I must unfortunately agree with my mirror.

It's a damned shame really, because in my mind I'm still that sweet, innocent seventeen year old that went away to join the army ... I still have a childish sense of humour and delight in the misfortune (as long as it isn't serious) of other's.

So why does my body do this to me?

I'm sooooooo intend to replace my mirrors with life size photographs of me as a teenager.

  1. Mirrors and scales are bastards.

  2. Ditto what Jessica said.
    But you know what, I haven't met you in "real life" but I already see you as handsome.. so I don't think you are seeing the same person in the mirror as I see on your blog :)

  3. Mirror, mirror on the wall who's the most handsome of all?. According to your mirror not you like us all old age is catching up with you, me and everybody else in our age group :-).

  4. mirrors are not our friends & should be banned. or at least banned from the neck down.
    btw, i gave you an award on my blog tonight, if you're interested.

  5. Oh Dear didn't you hear? Old age is the new black! Just listen, you have a lovely wife who loves and adores you. She obviously sees the person you are on the inside and that is all that should matter right? Right. Now stop looking in those mirrors and wishing for something else when you don't need it.

  6. I'm Ok with mirrors, it's the photographs that get me down sometimes. I've never felt terribly photogenic, and when people say, "Oh this is a great picture of you! I love this one!" I never believe them. I'm working on it though. - G

  7. All mirrors are liars - don't believe what they reflect.

  8. I think that's a great idea. :-) I am always surprised to see myself in a mirror -- in my mind, I am still at the peak of my attractiveness, which actually was probably a good 8 or 9 years ago.

    But like my dad always says, growing older certainly beats the alternative.
