Topic: Am I Ageist?
strange question. Ann and I are both 68 and we go to a local (working mens) club on Sunday nights to see a show and play the obligatory bingo.
Strange as it may sound but we are about the youngest there most are in their 70's or 80's but don't really act their age.
Now I like to wear jeans and tee shirt whereas most of the men like to wear baggy cream trousers, or what I call old mens drawers! They also like the background music before bingo and the act up loud. I don't mind that even though it's overpowering the conversation and they'll turn off decent music e.g the Eagles and put on Engelbert Humperdinck or Frank Sinatra....it's enough to drive one to drink, lucky then it's a drinking club and they have a well stocked bar, and the barman also plays guitar and we jam on occasion. The old crumblies moan like old trees when they see a guitarist set their gear up. That's the fun part.
So, does that make me an ageist?
