My 20 year school reunion is coming up in August. That makes me pretty old, right?
My husband marvels at me with the whole age issue.
I know people (usually women) who would rather gouge out their own eyes with a spoon than tell anyone their age.
The way I see it, it goes one of two ways;
Either someone says to me “You’re 37? I would never have guessed! You look so much younger.” (Awesome feeling, I look younger than I actually am!)
Or they say; “You’re only 37? I thought you were older” (Awesome feeling, I’m actually younger than I look!)
As many times as I have explained this to him and other friends and family, I still get the shaken heads and the rolled eyes. People obviously do not get at all where I am coming from.
Doesn’t it seem all ass-backwards when people who are paranoid about their age, want to hide it and tell no one, are considered more normal than people who dont?
