It was my birthday on Tuesday – some of you didn’t wish me happy birthday, but that’s okay I’m over it now! 🎈
Getting older is funny isn’t it? I remember being 16 and meeting someone who was 28 and thinking, wow you must be so mature and together.
Now I’m that age. I assumed there’d be some kind of change, some kind of process where you just morph into a mature adult – like in ‘The Sims.’
But that doesn’t happen. You just have to adapt and make out like you’re all there.
The question I’ll leave you with is this… how different would your life be if you didn’t know how old you were?
One of the best copywriting quotes I’ve ever heard comes from Winnie the Pooh:
“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like “what about lunch?”
I think that’s also true for a lot of marketing content.
P.S Eeyore was always my favourite character in the stories, here’s a quote from him that still cracks me up to this day:
“Oh, Eeyore, you are wet!” said Piglet, feeling him.
Eeyore shook himself, and asked somebody to explain to Piglet what happened when you had been inside a river for quite a long time.”
(From the works of A.A. Milne).
