To me my twenties really don’t seem that long ago and yet my daughter has put me in my place by pointing out I am way too old to listen to One Direction on my iPod!
I don’t remember her saying that when we were watching them on X-Factor or even when we went to the X-Factor Live Show, but now that we are on our summer holidays I am too old.
I will have to add this to my long list of other ‘Dad, You are Embarrassing Me’ incidents such as attempting to dance at the holiday disco, not wearing a t-shirt around our holiday accommodation and, worst of all ‘holding my teenagers hand when walking to the shop’.
It seems that I am slightly less than fashionable, when did this happen? Apparently I am just supposed to accept this and move on to liking country music (ok, I do like a bit of Johnny Cash) and dressing from Marks and Spencer (an old man’s clothes shop apparently) which is all well and good but I don’t feel quite ready for this ‘one foot in the grave’ scenario quite yet.
So I am going to do, as I have always done…. rebel (with a small ‘r’) by putting some Little Mix on my iPod. Living on the edge, that’s me!
