Are you losing your appetite for ‘exotic’ (tasty) foods? Do you now turn down invitations to friends’ barbecues? Find yourself turning your TV audio up a notch or two? Finding a tank of petrol takes you tens of kilometres further? (But getting further takes longer?) Getting grumpier about what young people are getting up to nowadays? Do politicians words seem to offer hope to others and not you? Are summers seeming shorter and winters longer (and chillier)? Do you catch shop assistants rolling their eyes when you ask them for directions- again? Do you sometimes feel the underdog deserves the slapping he is about to get? Do you HATE reality TV? Does Snoop Dogg have no meaning for you? Do you struggle to believe the year is not actually 4 months long? Do you recall with some fondness such artists as ABBA, BeeGees and Roger Whittaker?
I’m afraid you probably have, to some extent at least, AYS- Advancing Years Syndrome.
Don’t hesitate to add your symptoms of this affliction to the list!!!
But!! Remember!! It’s a terminal affliction so accept that and get on with making the best of what you’ve got in the absolute understanding that you had it better then than they do today!!!
