'The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.' So said Lucille Ball.
However in my experience it doesn't pay to age well.
You can eat the right foods, take regular exercise and do all the recommended things and they'll still say 'She looks young for her age - must have had Botox' or 'There's no way she could have a body like that without surgery'.
It used to be the case that these comments were reserved for celebrities who were desperately trying to keep their looks, but nowadays your friends and acquaintances can be the subject of these accusations.
Of course women are the worst. It's understandable I suppose since appearance matters so much to the fairer sex.
I'm surprised that my wife succumbs to this though. After all, she knows perfectly well that my youthful appearance and George Clooney looks owe nothing whatsoever to the surgeon's knife.
