Why do I spend so much time fangirling old men?
"Why do I spend so much time fangirling old men? Yeah, that's the life of a Snape fan and a Cure fan."
So goes the Snapecast Episode 27. I have no idea what "Cure" is, but fangirling old men? Oh yes, I understand a little too well. I'll take wrinkles and greying hair over muscles and toothy grins anyday. There's nothing quite like the charm of a grandfatherly old man who lives life at a snail's pace. A new store opened up near my dorm last week, and on my first trip there, my cashier was a staid, methodical man in his seventies or eighties with very little hair to speak of. The sight alone of his calm movements and slow smile gave me a glow that I couldn't shake for the rest of the day. Part of the attraction is the wisdom gained through experience of course, and part of it is simply mystery garnered through age. A larger part is even a motherly instinct to protect and to cherish. But just try explaining this to any peer of mine, and at best, you'll get an uncomfortable "Okay."
It's weird. :D I get it.
