This is a number that keeps changing for me over the years. When I was a child in England, I thought my parents were old, and my grandma ancient.
When grandma died, it was my parents, aunts, and uncles. that were old. I would say they were in their mid to late 50’s. The style was suits, or jackets, and trousers for men. The ladies always wore a dress, or top, and skirt.
Once my parents turned 65, which was retirement age in England, and I was 33, I figured it was my responsibility to help them. They were old age pensioners.
Turn the clock on to today. I am 71 years young, workout every day, and go dancing often. I wear short skirts, bikinis, and tight fitting clothes. No matter what needs doing, I will attempt it.
My husband is 85, and he says that he doesn’t want to be with those old people. Yes, you heard right, OLD people.
So back to my question. What age to you class as old? My answer is, ‘When you are dead’. Age is just a number.
