“Tell, your daughter not to call me ‘aunty’,” she warned.
“I will. Even I hate someone calling me ‘uncle’,” I tried to console her.
This friend is genuinely young and gorgeous, so it is legitimate anger.
However, I think the “look young” rage is dipping to crazy levels among some. One person I know goes to a Middle Eastern country often to have facial and other surgeries, spending thousands of dollars. I have seen her going through painful times.
There are others who use all kinds of creams. A friend bought an expensive weight loss machine last month, which he now uses as a cloth hanger. One guy shaves two times a day to look “bright.” Another lets his jeans hang down his hip. We call him “low-hip” hero.
I feel nothing can match physical exercises or yoga. Walk, run or try skipping. No pain, no gain. This pain is better than an injection from a doctor, right?
You might have heard this joke:
“How old are you?”
“You said that five years ago.”
“I always stand by what I say.”
