What it’s like to get older

It’s funny (or not) but I do remember the days when I was 20-years-old thinking how old people my current age looked. And yet, right now, I don’t feel as old as I thought I would at my age.

Time flies when you’re having fun. Then one day you wake up and think that year 12 students look like babies. Hey, it happens.

We all get old, well, the lucky ones do. And as we age our outlook on life changes. Young people look younger, the clothes seemingly become more ridiculous or a blatant rip-off of clothes that we wore decades before – only shorter or more see-through.

In five funny panels, two clever comic artists Willie Muse and Jacob Andrews have captured the painful reality of getting older. Do you think they’ve nailed it?
