|A Colombo elite growing old|

Most people in Sri Lanka grow old gracefully, while some elites in Colombo circles fight and scratch the whole way.
Siripala's wife, refusing to give in to the looks of growing old, goes out to LP and buys a new line of expensive cosmetics guaranteed to make her look years younger.
After a lengthy sitting before the mirror applying the "miracle" products like Fair & Lovely, she asks her husband - "Nimal darling, honestly, if you didn't know me, what age would you say I am?"
Looking over her carefully, Siripala replied,...
"Judging from your skin, thirty;
your hair, twenty four;
and your figure, thirty five."
"Oh, you flatterer!" she gushed. Just as she was about to tell Siripala his reward for the night, he stops her by saying...
"Aney Latho, hold on there gaeniyey!" Siripala interrupted.
"I haven't added them up yet!"
Poor old Siripala had to sleep alone on the couch at night for many months.
