"How old are you?"
There's one time when I like this question. When a stranger or acquaintance says, "So, how old are you, 40?" I proudly boast my age. This, however, is happening on fewer and fewer occasions. So, what's a girl (oh, that's right, middle ager) to do when this inquiry is made?
Here are a few of my responses:
1) 38 (we all want to be 10 years younger, no?)
2) Old enough.
4) I don't want to talk about it..
6) How old are you?
7) Mid-life crisis age.
8) One hundred and twenty.
9) Older than you think (hopefully)
10) I'm old.
I love Erma Bombeck's quote:
As a graduate of the Zsa Zsa Gabor
School of Creative Mathematics,
I honestly do not know how old I am.
Didn't this work for Zsa Zsa? I don't think anyone knows her real age. My goal in 2010, as I'm trying to embrace the coming of the big 5-0, is to say "48" (yes, my real age) with confidence. What's your answer to this "age-old" question?
