Virile cookie

A nurse described a 96 year old male as still appearing virile.

Most references use "having the characteristics of an adult male" as definition #1 for this term.

It just sort of struck me as funny.

I know what she was trying to describe and the patient might actually be glad to know that after 96 years of being a male he still has the characteristics of a male!

Recently the same nurse described an 88 year male as being a stable cookie.

I suspect he too would have preferred to have been virile instead of a "having the characteristics of a cookie!"
