vecchio come Matusalemme

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the expression, vecchio come Matusalemme, which means as old as Methuselah (who, according to tradition, lived almost a 1,000 years). See the expression used below:

Mio nipote di sedici anni non vuole venire al cinema con me e i miei amici perché dice che per lui siamo vecchi come Matusalemme e si annoia con noi.

My sixteen year old nephew does not want to come to the movies with me and my friends because he says that for him we are as old as Methuselah, and he gets bored with us.
