I do love them, and I have given a few in my time BUT in my middle years what I really want is:
- To meet interesting people who talk and listen and don’t assume that because I am over 50 I have nothing to say and do nothing interesting;
- Not be so noisy that you have to shout to be heard and miss every third word of the person you are talking to, leaving you to guess what they are talking about. Same goes for restaurants by the way;
- Where I can sit down if I’m there for more than an hour.
Is this a sign that I’m getting old and grumpy? Probably, but bring it on!
