Isn’t our perception of age an intriguing subject? When we’re tiny, even a teenager looks 3 generations ahead of us and we’d swear our parents are nearing 100. When we reach our late teens it’s a bit of a shock to be labelled an adult and even people in their 30s are well past middle age.
As we reach that age ourselves, we start to realise our parents are really not that much older than ourselves after all. The shocking thing from then on is that we notice celebrities on TV getting younger and younger by the day. Go to a pub and you’re surrounded by peachy skinned youths who look like they’ve just come out of nursery school.
As we grow older it’s also easy to lose touch with what’s important to the generations that follow us. If you belong to the older generation, you’ll know just what a challenge it is to keep up with the latest fads that interest all the different age groups.
One minute your granddaughter is into Pokn, next thing it’s Hannah Montana that’s all the rage. What looks good to you would only make your grown-up children cringe and as for the latest gadgets, well you’ve only just learned how to switch a mobile phone on.
