Old couple walking
This photo is a reminder that no matter how young or old you are, you should be sure to keep your bones active - even if they creak and even if they can't carry you that far. Walk, run, cycle or swim. Get outdoors and enjoy the lovely cool-yet-sunny weather that we often have in winter.

When you're old some day you'll be glad that you kept yourself active.

    Why is it necessary to use the word “old”.. and how do you know that they are a couple? Two people strolling along “Sea Point’s promenade” (which you failed to mentioned is all that’s need to be said.
    Try not to be sexist and ageist.

    I guess I used the word old because to me they were old (I mean, I watched them pass me by and they were significantly older than what I am). I guess it’s much like my niece would consider me old. In the same way I’d consider my niece young – and I’d say to her – “hey, you’re young.”. If she called me “old” I’d laugh at her. I wouldn’t be offended.

    As for the word “couple”. Well, they seemed a couple, and, I don’t think there’s much wrong with that either. Even if they weren’t a couple – it doesn’t really matter. At the very least there were two of them – so a couple indeed.

    I’m not sure why you’re saying this is sexist. And, this “ageist” thing – that’s just weird.

    I’m sorry if this post offended you – I however still don’t see merit in your argument. Feel free to email me if you feel strongly about this and would like to chat it through some more – my email address is on the contact page.
