An amusing incident.......well, kinda amusing.....


Well now I've seen it all. I was in one of the chat rooms chatting with friends when a young lady came in. According to her profile, she is in her 20's. One of my male counterparts, who's just a bit older than I greeted her....that's all. She must have perved his profile, because this is what she said next:

"Wow...you sure are old!"



I swore I heard a cyber pin drop in the room.

All hell broke loose. Now understand, lifestylers are a close knit bunch. Sure, we'll argue...even fight amongst ourselves. But let an outsider slam one, the others will come a'runnin'.

Anyhow, the fracas ended with the young lady iggying all the ladies in the chat room, along with most of the men. She eventually left in a cyber huff. Us 'old men' joked about it for awhile, then it died down. But I felt I had to write about it.

So I leave you with this:
To all of you in your 20's and early 30's, yes I and some of my contemporaries are in our 40's and above..............so?

If you were in bed having smokin' hot sex with someone who is 39 and the clock strikes midnight and it's now their 40th birthday....are you going to stop and kick them out of bed?

And this final thought: Take your age now and add, oh let's say.....15 years. Gee, you're the same person inside aren't you? But you're a little older, hopefully a little wiser. Now imagine someone in their 20's telling you that 'you're over the hill'. Hurts a bit doesn't it? But hey....get over it!....as I'm reminded time and time again.

I've written the above with tongue firmly planted in cheek. But remember that "Age & treachery will ALWAYS overcome youth & skill"

Post script: the final laugh is the young lady emailed my friend....she wanted to chat with him in private will wonders never cease??

Hi Night Guy! I have read your comments on other blogs and find you very interesting. I can totally identify with your comments above. I recently posted a profile on the site and I got a comment from a guy the other day that showed his age as 46. I am 48. He wrote a whole paragraph about how my "age" was not a problem to him - he liked "older" women, etc, etc, etc. Maybe he should meet the 20 year old girl that invaded your chat - they are probably more mentally compatable!

Also, I entered the Insurance Industry fresh out of college. My boss (who became my mentor) told me up front that "old age & treachery will overcome youth and skill". I wasn't exactly sure what she was getting at ( because after all, I just came out of one of the finest all girls colleges in the SE on a full ride scholarship!) but I sure learned the meaning after my butt got handed to me a few times! She was definately right. I wouldn't go back in time for anything. I find my "old age" and treachery quite fun now!

BTW, are you an artist? I used to date a guy that looked and sounded a lot like you and he was an artist. Just wondering.....

Well, thank you for searching through these older posts....and welcome to the Fortress.

I used to have that saying about age & treachery in my work space when I was in the service....and it's still true LOL

No, the only artistic talent I have is turning a phrase or two, but thank you...I do appreciate your comments....
