n.— «The technical term for this—where you look pullable from behind, with your slashed mini, straggly Joss Stone hair and macrame ankle bracelet, but when swivelled around, look more like someone eligible to collect a pension—is 1661. (Get it? Sixteen from the back, 61 from the front.) Oh, dear. Perhaps that’s what I am: the ultimate 1661. Yet isn’t a certain amount of self-delusion necessary in order to cope with the horrible, galloping inevitability of old age?» —“1661;Is 45 really that old?” by Christa D’Souza Times (London, United Kingdom) Dec. 4, 2005.
