    I'm 26 and it always amuses me when people call me 'sir' or 'that man'. A woman in a shop the other day referred to me as 'that man' and I thought "what, me?!". I'm still a 'lad'.
    Don't feel special! I call every sir when I serve them cakes at work. The fat cake eating fatties. EVEN THE WOMEN.

    Its a self image thing isn't it? In my heart of hearts I still somehow believe I'm the same person I was when I was 16. The years have just flown over.

    Ditto! I still feel 16 (and I know I'm only two years older than that).

    I still say I like "boys" and I suppose that is going to start sounding inappropriate soon. I don't get called a "woman" yet though, just a lady. I was in France and someone called me "Madame" though - frightening.
    Surely Madame is only used for women of a certain 'maturity', or are obviously married?!

    My point exactly! I think they use it when there is ANY doubt about you being a Mademoiselle (sp?! lol)

    I am 16 and am in Year 11, and I see the little year 7's now and can't believe how young they are and how grown up I though I was when I was 11, I also thought that being in Yr11 was something special... but now I'm here it's just normal - something that happens to everyone... things always look different in hindsight...

    Yeah I guess so. I felt like I was in about year 10 when I met up with some old school friends. School and childhood are the best days of your lives, but i'd like to be proved wrong

    When I was aged 7 I thought that being 12 would have made me the most grown-up person in the world. All my pretend games with my friends involved us being 12 (and also going out with member of Boyzone - lol)

    from women it is never inappropriate - though from us men it might be more so saying we like 'girls'

    When you're 26 let me know if you're the same.

    What I want to know is what happened to the fabulous body I had when I was 16?
    did it decompose? taxidermy is a wonderful thing!

    Ha! School days are nowhere near the best days of my life! They were memorable yes but if those are your best days you either went to a far more fabulous school than I did or you need to get our more!
    I had some great friends at school.

    Thats what I mean, hopefully life later will be better than school.

    Or any eye other than yours for that matter

    Honestly that slim. muscular body is there, its just covered by a 2" layer of flab
    That's what I say about my dimples. F*ck*ng hell I need to lose weight, just to get my dimples back!

    I suppose some people could say growing up is when nothing's fun anymore. I ain't growing up then.

    i was forced to watch that by my silly little sisters - to be made to watch early 90s pre-pubescent boys with foppish haircuts trying to flirt makes me shudder even now.
