yep, well, at your advanced age, Bunz that razor sharp quick wit starts to go and soon, you're out of ammo.....

I'm 34, which isn't particularly old but only one person in my raid group is older than me. Everyone else (other than my husband) is in the early 20's or even teens, it makes me feel old. As for weight, I tell people I look pretty much like my avatar, which is a rather large and rotund bird-like creature.

Isn't she sweet! There goes that inheritance. :lol:

I was so stunned and flattered when my grand niece saw a pic of me from 20 years ago and pointed and said "hey, that's Auntie!"....I gave her my car. (she is 6)

Yes, she is sweet! And helped me clean yesterday...she needed more money to spend at the beach next week. Posted Image

Out of the mouths of babes...your grand niece must be a sweetie, too. Posted Image

When I hit 40, I decided to start counting backwards, so.... I'm 25.


I'll take the honors at 68. Ooops, can't remember anything else. Something you young'ns can look forward to. :)

I've recently turned 30. Given than in my home country that's the highest grade you can get in college, I just say I've reached near perfection. From next year on, I'll just say 30 cum laude ;) People usually think I am 22 or so, though. And I personally feel like I'm still that age.

Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Grave's disease (2011). It must have been a Black Friday.
Intestinal dysbiosis. Suspected damage to my vili (2012). NCGS according to my dermatologist upon seeing my post-wheat rash.

Gluten-free. Sept 2012.
Canola, almonds, soy = evil.

Grain-free, legume-free. December 2012.
No peanuts and tree nuts. February 2013.
Erb-Duchenne palsy from birth trauma.

My body is trying to kill me.

For me...age is truly just a number.

When I turned 47 last May - I felt like a very ill 87 year old.

As 48 approaches - I'm feeling better than I did at 18.

Oh and I've always looked younger than I am - which has been both an advantage and disadvantage at different times. Now, I must say I am very pleased that I look much younger than many of my friends ;) Hubby is only two years older than me and folks think he is more like ten -- he hates it -- I love it.

Hi
I'm 51 (had to work it out from date of birth as I make a point of not remembering) but I'm sure there is some mistake with it as I have never felt my age.
Kind of got stuck in 20's/30's and haven't moved on in my mind.
I mean, 51 ?????????????? that can't be right :ph34r: !
