No Spring Chicken
By the time you’re eighty years old you’ve learned everything. You only have to remember it.
Today’s English idiom has to do with aging. It’s the expression no spring chicken, which means ❛no longer young❜. It can be used in the following ways:
What’s Fred doing at the disco? He’s no spring chicken anymore.
Even though Mary is no spring chicken anymore, she runs 5 km every day.
Please forgive me for not remembering your name. I am no spring chicken, you know.
My question for you is: at what point are you no longer a spring chicken, i.e. young?
