Wrong Generation

Young boys have always been fascinated by older women! It's a simple, everyday fact of life. That's one reason why I actually feel sorry for Adam - he had no older woman to be fascinated by!

I'm no different. Most of my crushes have been on females considerably older than I. In fact I think the word 'females' makes them sound too young and it would be more appropriate if I called them ladies! Does anyone want to hazard any guesses or put forward any theories for the existence of this phenomenon?

Speaking of older ladies (and gentlemen), isn't it amusing that over here any person who is older than you is addressed as 'Uncle' or 'Aunty'? (Yup! Not even Aunt, but Aunty!) So if you meet someone on the road, it's - "How do you do, Uncle?" Or if you're Mom's friend comes over for dinner and asks you what you are doing - "I'm working with Thomas Cook, Aunty!"

You could 40 years old; as long as the other person is older than you, the U/A word just has to come out. When I addressed my friend's Mom as 'Ma'am' she almost got a heart attack! So the next time I tried 'Mrs. Joshi'; another quasi-cardiac arrest! I think I was thinking of going with 'Mrs. J', but now I think that might be too hazardous to her health!

I think the previous generation sure was lucky. Smoking pot, sleeping around, getting their kicks from listening Led Zeppelin! Hey wait! That's exactly what we do now too! But I still think my Pop had it better!

I mean those were the days of the Revolution and social nonconformism! The typical Beatle hairdos and those kickass-sexy jeans! Or the long flowing hair and the beard with the bright floral shirts! Free sex and loving for all! What I wouldn't give to have lived in those days instead!

there was this one poll i'd read in a mag bout why guys r fascinated my older ladies...most said it was their maturity and experience (intellectual, emotional and physical !!) that served to be a major turn on...whatever !!

arnold said...

varun - i have seen the green channel sometimes.. n the music is indeed pretty good.. but they keep repeating the same videos too often.. pretty good nevertheless!

arnold said...

suparna - i believe the older women thing is because they have the "been there done tht" quality! besides a woman's libido tends to peak later than a man's!
plus it's just tht much more exciting to fantasize about an older lady!! ;)
