Are you a hundred yet?
I went for a quick drink with two of my friends -- Madeleine Cotter and Di Allen --last night. Here are Mad and Di with the diary out planning our next girlie outing.
"I have to take photos for my blog," I said, forcing them to pose for individual shots.
"Oh, your blog...." they said -- did I hear a teeny bit of exasperation in their voices? -- figuring hideous photos of them that hadn't been vetted would show up the next day on the Internet. So I chose this one that they couldn't possibly object to.
We didn't have much time together as Mad and Di had to pick their kids up from rugby practice so we quickly caught up on family and work news.
I don't think there is much blog-worthy news to report from last night except that Mad told us her five-year-old daughter Oonagh is very curious about age. She is trying to understand what it means to be a teenager or 30 years old or 50, etc., then she turned and asked her mother:
"Are you a hundred yet?"
