Birth age or mental age or age we THINK we are?

 

In my case that would be 44, 12, and 25!

For me Lyn, that would be:

BS - I wouldn't want to be 21 forever, think I was a bit more mature and sensible at 25 tongue- if I had carried on much longer like I did at 21 I wouldn't be here now!  surprised (Well, I might be, but my liver would most certainly have shuffled off its mortal coil!)pintmedicinecheerschampagnewhistlewinedoh

Birth age: who's that old trout?

Mental age: um.. shuffle..mumble..um..er....eleven?

The age I think I am: 25 ish

 

Interestingly I once asked a lady celebrating her 90th birthday how old she really felt, and her reply was 45.

Never assume anything - except an occasional air of intelligence.

25 seems to be a popular age! I think I might have stayed at that age too. I'm getting to the age when people I went school or university with are starting to look old eeek

I saw a photo of myself from about 7 years ago and thought I looked really young - I didn't think I had aged much in the last few years surprised

I think I am in denial regarding my real age - I don't want to admit that I'm dangerously close to a round number with a 4 in it.

Back when I was in the bookshop, I was watching one of our known shoplifters when he got fed up with me:

"This f****g old c**t is p****g me off."

I threw him out of the shop for the bad language, but the bit that really hurt was the "old".doh

Reminds me of my time in Denmark and I went to a hairdresser who didn't speak any English and I understood little Danish and she was trying to persuade me to get some colour in my hair. I always swore that I would never colour my hair, I will grow old disgracefully or gracefully whichever the case maybe but it won't be by making myself look younger than I am with colour in my hair. Anyway I did understand ennough Danish to know she was telling me that I looked oldeeek. The cheek of it! Bet she didn't know how old I was anyway big_laugh. Despite my grey hair I am 46! cheers
