Gents, I have developed a quick test to help you determine if you are becoming old. Taken in the privacy of your own study, no one but you ever need know your results. Self scoring is strictly on the honor system here.
I kept a clipping of a story in the Independent, titled Blake Lively voted world's most desirable woman. An understandable reaction would be why I kept such musings, and I can only answer that I was taken aback. Who the hell is Blake Lively?
The gist of the story was a poll taken by AskMen.com rating the top 10 most desirable women in the world.
AskMen.com TOP 10 MOST DESIRABLE WOMEN IN THE WORLD 2011
1. Blake Lively
2. Mila Kunis
3. Sofia Vergara
4. Selita Ebanks
5. Miranda Kerr
6. Cheryl Cole
7. Scarlett Johansson
8. Katy Perry
9. Anne Hathaway
10. Jessica Pare
So Gents, here's the test. Accept that you will never, ever meet any of these women, or if you do it will come at GREAT personal expense.
Question 1. How many of these women have you ever heard of?
Question 2. Who on the list could you pick out of a lineup?
A logical 3rd question would be who cares, but we're not going there.
I admit I am deeply over the horizon, having heard of 3, and maybe with good lighting, I could pick out 2. I have items living in my sock drawer older than most of these girls.
Good luck, the fogey line forms to your right.
