Just back from a brief visit to Cornwall. It’s odd how insular we get as we become older. Fowey was full of yuppies in Ugg boots and ill fitting but expensive clothes. with accents that irritated us enormously. Now why? Their accents are no worse than our own. Their clothes only look bad in our opinion, as ours, no doubt, look in theirs.
In Falmouth it was hippies with dreadlocks and “like, yeah…” conversations. Well so what? Free country and all that.
I really don’t like the way we’re turning into grumpy olds.
