This is a question Turning into your parents

Unable to hold back the genetic tide, I find myself gardening in my carpet slippers, asking for a knife and fork in McDonalds and agreeing with the Daily Telegraph. I'm beyond help - what about you?

Thanks to b3th for the suggestion

Not a turning into my parents story, but about getting old nonetheless....
My kids (9 & 11) go to a running club. Some parents go along as well for a bit of exercise. I decided to give it a go this week, so I probed the dark recesses of my wardrobe to locate my Nike Air Pegasus - purchased around 1995.

"What are they dad?" the kids piped up.

"These are my running trainers", I proudly proclaimed, "these are older than you guys, but still in tip top condition, just like myself!"

Off we went, at a gentle canter.

My beloved trainers started to fall apart just after the first bend. The rear half of one sole decided to come half undone, creating an enormous "SCHLAP"-ing sound as I stumbled round the rest of the course.

I'm not going back next week.
