carewarn, haggard and grey-haired

I like this quote on Cliff-Colman

“I have been a blood donor since 1971, a member of Mensa since 1981, and when not contemplating the meaning of life, the universe and everything I am most likely to be seen shouting abuse at ‘home’ referees at Sunderland away games - that I am broken in spirit and body, careworn, haggard, grey-haired and aged beyond my years, riven by unspoken fears and nameless dreads is of course the inevitable consequence of 30 years of supporting Sunderland.”

Now I don’t know what “sunderland” is but remind me not to support it.  But nice prose and I, even now, feel the wrinkles deepening.   sigh
