Overheard in Cabra

When standing at my bus stop on the Cabra Road, I have never once seen a pensioner eat a bag of Hula Hoops.

I have never seen a pensioner texting someone.

I have never seen a pensioner smoking a cigarillo.

I have never seen a pensioner carrying a Lifestyle sports bag.

I have never seen a pensioner carrying a shoulder bag.

I have never seen a pensioner trying to look cool in front of another pensioner.

I have never seen a pensioner use an iPod Touch without looking at the screen.

I have never seen a pensioner use an iPod Touch.

I have never seen a pensioner reading Closer Magazine.

I have never seen a pensioner drinking Lucozade.

I have, only once, heard a pensioner tell another pensioner about their blog.

I'd love to read it...

"I'm still alive, door is on the latch just in case. Bring loose leaf tea"

Meadow said...

Old people are cool. Some are very cool.

Did you swap urls, dearie?

Susan said...

Thank God for pensioners.
Was the last one Grandad?

Kath Lockett said...

I want to be a forty year old pensioner. Now. ...but can I still keep my iPod?

Radge said...

Sessions - Welcome. Probably offwhitelongjohns.blogspot.com.

Holemaster - And Ovaltine.

Meadow - No, dearie. But I am following him on Twitter.

Susan - Too cleanly shaven.

Kath - A grammophone if you're good.

Red Leeroy said...

have you seen two old people stare each other down, one take out a switchblade, the other some nunchucks, and then engage in a battle to the death?

Radge said...

Red - Not recently, no.

Conan Drumm said...

Is it that auld 'Cablog' fella, username Coddle?

Sweary said...

"Blog" is probably some age-specific slang for dodgy knees. I wouldn't worry about it.

Radge said...

Conan - No. He only comes out at night. I've seen him skulking.

Sweary - Finally, yes. I should have guessed when he said, 'I've an awful dose of the blog.'

Maimie said...

Are 'almost pensioners' allowed access to this blog?

Radge said...

Few years until that particular milestone, Maimie.
