Research


" I have another blog question! How old are they and what sex are they?" 
So asked Mr A when I stood paying for petrol at the village garage and shop.
( Mr A, as you may recall asked the  where are you all from ? blog question earlier in the year, the one that gained nearly 700 comments in 48 hours!)
This second question not only caught me unawares but confused Margaret the cashier somewhat
" How old are who? "she asked " and are who having sex?" 
It got all a bit confusing after that

And so, Mr A in one of his more vague posed questions wants to know dear readers

How old are you?( you can give a wide demographic here if you wish eg " over fifty , over sixty etc" 

What sex are you?

And thirdly ( for the bemused Margaret ) 

ARE YOU STILL HAVING SEX?

Should be an interesting read
( let it be said that Mr A suggests that I have an 80 % female readership of ( and I'm quoting) " a more mature demographic " 
He also suggested that most of my male followers are "LGBT"  ( I didn't correct him as he was on a roll)
We have a bet going ( a few quid ) that I have no followers under 25! ( I said I must have at least 5)

203 comments:

  1. My body age is 62, but in my mind I'm under 25, will that do, female, and yes.

  2. Hello Mr A . I am fifty five but I have been reading John's Blog for many many years. I might come back to the having sex question after there are more comments !

  7. MrA..he mustve been thinking on this for a while. Not to disappoint him I fit his demographic outline.. female well over 60 (dammit..but the alternative is not too attractive)

    And as for Margaret...sheesh!! What sort of sex is she referring too??? Is she requiring specifics? (I hope not)

    3. Mr A exists, but is not a friend more an aquaintance . We chat briefly when we meet and his first question about where blogging commentators come from was the longest conversation I have ever had with him. He's in his early 60s or is a well kept 70. He once entered a gladioli in the flower show

      Delete
    4. Traveller, the last thing I need is an unnecessary altercation (necessary ones are welcome). One of the first things I learnt is that you can't answer an "or" question by saying yes. Or no. I did offer a choice. I therefore can't be "wrong". Neither do I wish to be "right". One of my downfalls that I couldn't care either way. I just offer options.

      Anyway, John, so very refreshing that you put an answer to a question. I particularly like Mr A's gladioli touch. Such as sensitive person.

      Other than that, and if I have said it once I have said a hundred times, you (and Mr A) sure do have a way of drawing people out of themselves. Trouble being that I largely try and avoid thinking of others' sex lives. Now? Now your comment box has lost its innocence.

      As to readers under twenty five: Take heart. They don't have time for blogging - other than for commercial purposes.
