My husband used to tease me about my age. He was twelve years my senior. He would add ten years to my real age and start cracking jokes. I didn’t mind it one bit, when we were alone. In company, it was another matter. I would be fuming inwardly, while pasting a sunny smile on my face.😬.Grrrrrrrrr……..
The thing was, if there were ladies present, I could see it in their eyes, (a woman’s intuition) that I am about my husband’s age, or somehow hiding my true age and trying to appear younger. It used to put me in a very bad light. I would look daggers at him.The truly dense among his audience, would believe his absurd joke, making me feel highly irritated. 😠. At times like those, I would have gladly shipped him to outer space.🚀
You meet all sorts of people in life. Some are comfortable with how they look, their age, (they don’t lie about their age) and what ever. But there are others, who are phonies. They are twisted in their own minds, and they think others are the same as themselves.
Women try to hide their ages more than men. They forget that their faces give them away, unless they had plastic surgery, Botox injections, or any other similar procedure. Such women try to imprint upon your mind, oh their sweet delusions!, that they are years younger than you, rather than the other way round. It’s obvious, but not to them. They have the audacity to behave like you are their ‘Long Lost Granny,’ and should ‘Cuddle’ them up right to your chest. Argh……….😖. Oh Dear God!

My dad does the opposite – he tells everybody he is 14 years older to my mom when actually he 7 years her senior! this nevertheless has her fuming because he pretends to be older than he is 😉
That’s nice.I would have liked that from my husband. I miss him and his jokes at my expense.
I am sure you do Maam! My dad has started keeping unwell lately and my mum who has been constantly fighting with him for the last 40 years now is worried sick! I completely understand how you must be feeling!
How sad about your father. You must be worried too? Are you an only child?
