When I was younger, I used to wonder if I would become a different person as I age. By that I mean would I change the way I dress, veer away from the bohemian kind of clothes that I adore, style my hair differently or change my behavoir in my golden years?
In other words, would I end up with the curly auntie hairdo (like a hair perm gone wrong) and wear loose floral shirts and samfu pants like the granny next door? Would I still be funny and goofy? Will I have problem communicating with the young or be hampered by generation gap? Will I become naggy and bitter?
As I age gradually, I realise I'm still the same old person with the same old preferences and tastes. I still won't date men with skinny legs (ok, ok, maybe I will if he has a really nice personality) or have an afro. I'm still a boho chick (an older one no doubt) though I am no longer comfortable wearing anything too gaudy or revealing.
My taste in music hasn't changed and I do enjoy the same kind of songs the kids listen to. While I'm older and wiser now, I still behave like a child sometimes. Whilst my body is no longer as agile and energetic as before, I am still game for a good run or hike up the hills.
Yah, I realise I'm pretty much the same old person albeit one with alot more life experiences behind me. As a result, I am less impulsive and more aware of the consequences of my actions.
So for the younger ones out there who wonder about what old foggies like us are thinking... well, I hope I've solved your mystery.
