Geography lesson

(This is for Maxine, who believes herself to be too old for a Viggo! Read to the end...)

The Geography of a woman

Between 18 and 20, a woman is like Africa, half discovered, half wild, naturally beautiful with fertile deltas.

Between 21 and 30, a woman is like England - well developed and open to trade, especially with a country with money.

Between 31 and 35, she is like India - very hot, relaxed and convinced of her own allure.

Between 36 and 40, a woman is like France - gently aging but still a warm and desirable place to visit.

Between 41 and 50, she is like Yugoslavia - lost the war, haunted by past mistakes. Massive reconstruction now needed.

Between 51 and 60, a woman is like Russia - very wide with un-patrolled borders. The frigid climate keeps people away.

Between 61 and 70, a woman is like Mongolia, with a glorious and all conquering past, but alas no future.

After 70, women become Afganistan - almost everyone knows where it is but no one wants to go there.


The Geography of a man

Between 15 and 70 a man is like America - ruled by a dick!

Hello Minx,
What a clever post this...
Thanks for coming by. That was nice.
Would it be ok to place you on my blogroll?

(I'm not able to post copy under a Blogger User Name here)

Susan, welcome, seems there is a merging of our blogging villages! By all means create linkage, I will reciprocate!

I am now, for my button pushing sins, a B-Blogger. Comment by clicking on 'other' and entering your details - should work then.

I had problems posting a comment yesterday so here I am trying again.

Just wanted to say thanks for making me laugh, Minx!

Good one, Minx.

I think that most men are as you describe in your post.
Therefore, when such a specimen reaches 32, he will only consider even speaking to a woman if she is half his age. Later on, this changes to one-third, one-quarter, etc.

So unless Viggo is one of the honourable exceptions that treats a woman as a person, I am definitely in the crone category!

We don't use the 'C' word Maxine, not never. I'm sure Viggo has his 'slightly older lady' glasses on anyway!

I beg to differ. At ninety, I'm just getting into Africa - hot, relaxed and full of allure. Mind you, I suppose Novapulsians age different from you humans.

You is a chicken with spring Granny Were - someone is going to take out an ASBO on you soon - or should the be a Granny Anti Social Behaviour Order!

Minx, that was so funny. I sent the link to your blog to some of my favourite people. I had really good laugh. Well done
