I am super happy as I scored 6! 😁 Much of it actually seems nonsense to me such as well done steaks and adding salt before tasting! What's your score?

Wow. I am quite chuffed - I only scored 1! Unfortunately, that's only because I am an unconventional old fogey! 😁🌸

I watched one series of Love Island because I work with a group of young women and the lunchtime conversation centred around this . Didn't want to be left out . Just waiting to apply for Senior Love Island but love handles springs to mind . Can't see many watching more than one episode and I may have to wear one of those costumes with skirt attached - preferably knee length.

MadBunny in reply to focused1

What a great idea. Quite a few of us could join that. My skirt would need to be ankle length though 🤣

Ha ha! You have forgotten that I don't watch TV at all! I have to spend my time monitoring the activities of Pilkers....... 😁🌸

I scored 9,the most embarrassing one being making noises when I sit down (and when I stand up) 😁 my parrot has perfected that arthritic groan that escapes when I bend down 😂

Well I scored 3.

6 for me too MichaelJH. 🙂

6 for me too! Not quite sure why cappuccino is on the list. As far as I'm concerned it's traditional Italian 😁Is there another type of coffee that's trendy at the moment then?

Good morning MichaelJH this is a bit of fun I scored one as I’ve always like nice comfortable shoes. Enjoy your day now as I smiled at lots of these questions. 👍

Oh I'll happily admit to many of those MichaelJH. I'm definitely and proudly a member of the generation who knew who they were and still know who they are, with no apologies. And, applying the same questions to younger people I'd say there are still quite a few who do some of these too, whether they will admit to it or not. I think it's absolutely OK for us all to be who we are and not be embarrassed about it. 😊👍🌈

Hey Teacher, settle an argument for me please? Is it wrong to put And at the beginning of a sentence?

MadBunny profile image
MadBunny in reply to BTCCET

Technically yes but I do it all the time. And I don't care 🤣

BTCCET profile image
BTCCET in reply to MadBunny

Oh 🙊

BTCCET profile image
BTCCET in reply to BTCCET

Technically I was wrong then😳

Well things might have changed over the years. I'm going back ( a long way) to what I was taught.😁

😂😂You are on form. The badinage here is providing laughter as I sit marking nursing assignments and my bum’s numb from sitting. Thank you😊

Well, given your obvious qualifications, I am sure you know the NICE pathway for diagnosis and treatment of a numb bum! 😁🌸

MadBunny in reply to Marnie22

Ah but would consultations be e consultations? Or face to face? 😁

I have not played a DVD for decades.

Does anyone still play VHSs?

MadBunny in reply to S11m

Yes. Got loads of them!

Marnie22 in reply to S11m

I recently bought 11 seasons and 2 films - the entire output of The X-Files - on Blu-ray...... but I don't yet have a Blu-ray player! I just stroke the box occasionally, (honest!) 😆🌸

MichaelJH in reply to Marnie22

I am worried by this behaviour! 🤣

You'll get used to Marnie and her Mulder and Scully obsession, nothing to worry about 😏

Marnie22 in reply to MichaelJH

I am a massive X-Files fan, that's all. I can't yet afford a Blu-ray player, but I had to buy the discs as they were getting hard to find. But I do stroke the box. (It's right by my bed.....) 😆🌸

I am a generation past "past it", never listened to Radio 1, went from Radio Caroline to World Service Overseas. What are sneakers? they are plimsoles, as for struggling to work my TV remote, first , I have to work out which of the black rectangular things it is ( landline phone, mobile, and the remote for my heater) Very irritating, turn down TV volume and discover am now freezing.

"Very irritating, turn down TV volume and discover am now freezing."

🤣🤣🤣

I scored 7 - oh dear 😀

I was about 40 when I walked into a place called The Record Bar. All I could see were cassette tapes. I was looking for a record. The clerk told me that records weren’t made anymore, I’d have to go the next city to find a used one. I’ve been “past it” for a long time. 😂 I guess they couldn’t afford to change their sign for a long time.
