As we get older

Blinking flip! I was back at the doctor's again today.

Also, ominously, he dropped his voice at one stage and said, as he explained something to me, doubtless blindingly obvious to the great unwashed, "As we get older."

I use that line all the time, I thought until today, ironically.

Anyway, it is to do with the appearance of aches and pains leading me to believe that both hip joints were disintegrating on Wednesday night.

It may yet be the case. A dose of paracetamol and a daily Vitamin D tab for a week might reduce the aching joints.

Now class, what might we add to this starting phrase: As we get older ... ?

No prizes.

Is this supposed to be like one of those Tui ads?

As we get older we get wiser....yeah, right.

I like that saying that old age and treachery will overcome youth and beauty any day.
