I am getting older and it seems to be getting a little bit out of control.
Last week I had another birthday and apparently I’m 32…Honestly, I’m demanding an official recount. But I checked myself and the numbers add up.
I have been considering that I might be losing touch as I’m dangerously close to my mid-thirties. The other day I watched that Gary Barlow documentary (I said I was losing touch) and one line really stood out:
“I just didn’t want to be a fat dad”.
I know what he means. I don’t want to be a fat dad or an out-of-touch dad or worse – an embarrassing dad. I had my hair cut the other day and didn’t understand any of the slang the hairdresser – who I’m sure was born in the 90s – was using. I just nodded and occasionally faked a laugh…who knows what I was laughing at.
But there is hope – I’ve found myself thinking of celebrities who are older than me who are still cool. Top of my list: David Beckham and Daniel Craig. I mean, have you seen those guys? Talk about improving with age.
So now I’m watching what I eat, cycling to work, watching more James Bond and I’ve changed barbers. That should do it for now.
