Picture this: three ladies in short dresses and high heels were walking down a paved road, towards a building on the opposite block. In their path, was a drain, about a foot or so wide. They could either hop across it, or walk a further distance where a completely covered path exists.
"Should we jump?"
"We're in heels... what if we fall?"
"It looks dangerous..."
We decided to walk further, like proper ladies ought to.
"You know, if I was ten years younger, I would've just jumped!"
"Right! Or if I was wearing flats or slippers, I would've considered jumping too..."
Yup, definitely older and wiser now.
