My Hip Is Broken

A few weeks ago I had a fleeting conversation with the sister of one of my friends. She's 18 (uhh I think) and I now I feel so old.

We were able to communicate pretty easily but the language was kinda different. I do have people of the same age on my list (note to any coppers reading: they are family or friends of family so it's all innocent) but there was something about that day that made me realise how old I am. I'm not sure what it was exactly.

And it is embarrassing at times. Pathetic even. It's especially worrying 'cos I don't feel like I'm 27 at all. It's like I'm in some kind of age limbo, with people constantly commenting on how good I am at acting younger than my years. Maybe I'm hanging desperately on to my past and being dragged kicking and screaming into age. I just hope I don't become one of those old men who wear baseball caps and use forced slang. "Wicked" is still in, isn't it?

Time to grow up and start acting my age? Maybe. I'm not sure how to though... I have friends of all ages and get on with all of them (although at times I feel too mature and others the opposite), so I don't think it's the company that's at issue. Maybe I have to change my clothes or the programmes I watch or something? Maybe it's marriage that forces people to grow up or something? It'll be interesting to see if that's the case.
