Bad Grandma’s Rules for Living

Don’t Be A Panko Prawn

You shrink as you get older. This is nothing to be ashamed of, it’s God’s way of giving you the lead in our own production of ‘Honey, I shrunk the kids’. But heed my golden rules for dealing with this, if you want to have a truly happy ThirdAge.

First, stop telling your children they’ve grown since you last saw them. They haven’t, you’re shrinking.

Second, admit you’re now a size 6 not 12 and buy clothes which fit you now not then. Alternatively, only wear kaftans.  

Third, be clean, not chic. No one cares if you no longer dress like a fashionista, but they will if you look like you sleep in a biscuit tin and look like a panko prawn.

Fourth, never wear pink.
