Growing old may be mandatory, but growing up’s always optional

Don't worry children, it won't hurt a bit...

CLIVE SMITH: Third World War fears from the internet generation

Have your say

Anew study has revealed that the majority of men don’t grow up until the ripe old age of 43.

Really? I beg to differ. In my view they’ll always be little boys in long trousers, only interested in playing on their Xbox, chasing us girlies, leaving the loo seat up and slobbing out on the sofa with a kebab whilst watching Chucklevision.

Having said that, who doesn’t have their childish moments?

You know, jumping on the swings in the park, getting excited popping bubblewrap, dancing madly in the lounge and singing into a hairbrush as you mime to a Girls Aloud tune.

No? Oh well, it’s just me then.

Growing old is mandatory, but growing up is always optional.
