Only 50!

February 17th, 2007 · Posted by Skuds in Life · No Comments · Life

I was reading Word magazine, and they had a list of famous people who turn 50 this year. With many of them the response is a mixture of surprise they are that old and a touch of sadness – a reminder that we are all growing older.

So the list contained names like Ade Edmondson, Glenn Tilbrook, Danny Baker, Siouxsie Sioux and Cindy Wilson.

And then right at the end it had Osama bin Laden and I did a comedy double-take. I don’t know why, but I just always assumed he passed fifty a long time ago. Perhaps its the beard. Its an old male trick to grow a beard when young to look more mature and then shave it off in middle age to suddenly lose a decade of apparent age. Its called “doing a Kris Kristofferson” I believe.

Anyway, the big day is March 10th in case anyone wants to send a, ahem, ‘package’.
