As a kid, I used to admire my Grandpa a lot, and I whisper to my self “Elli, you must grow up to become an exceptionally old man.
One who is seen, behaves and dresses like an elite, and one who knows “what time it is”.
My Grandpa had a very good sense of fashion, one that can sweep a young woman off her feet.
And you know, listening to his legendary days’ stories, he goes like “you boys of today, do not take dressing seriously at all, you can communicate your personality with your ‘outfit’.
You can win a contract with your outfit, and of course, you can be accepted or rejected by your marriage suitors with your outfit or appearance as well.”
My Grandpa, just like most pensioners, used to be very particular with his dressing, and it worried me some times because, as a young lad, I felt it’s a waste of time and energy after all, who’s got time to admire an ‘Oldman’,?
But today, my perspective on this subject matter has changed.
A friend once said “Charley, whoever takes care of our president’s wardrobe deserves great commendation because, just all of a sudden, our old boy has developed a different taste for fashion, one which is attractive, one which is communicative, and one which is befitting for a President, a father and role model, with the highest attention anyone could ever boast of: in a country once known as Gold Coast or the gold hub.
Truth should be told, money, peace of mind and a positive spirit can really change one’s outlook.
Humanity shouldn’t be at each other’s throat at all, because apart from the above mentioned craves of man coupled with the presence of God, man does not really have any much quest, because after all is said and done, life dies.
Do you have an old man in your household?
Please do well to show him some love, for that’s all that makes life worthwhile for them.
