Gnarly! Right on, K!

Isn't it a blast? I don't even care if I'm good or not. It's such an organic sound, too. I feel really tribal when I'm gettin' my didg on.

I think I might actually get one of those flesh tunnel earrings now.

"Flesh tunnel" that sounds icky.

How've you been?

Castrated, huh?

Well, I'm happy to say I'm not in the same state.
  
  
You know me, it's all good, except when it's bawd, or is it bad?

I could tell you - but then - I would have to shoot you!  When I was young the Grateful Dead were just formed the same year my son was born.

My Wii Fit told me I was 35 today!  Woohoo!! Of course last week, it said 57 and if I got on it again tonight it could say 21. Or 75.

Good thing I had to program in my actual age because all these numbers are making me forget (which is common at my age)

*wrinkling my nose*

AHEM

(let me try this again?) SHEESH!

After owning a didgeroo, and learning to hum a few bars, I happen to think that all didgeroo owners are voluntarily exempt from this question.

I'm 47--but mind you, that's only for this year!

Well, it may have something to do with the thousands of dollars we spend on cream and surgery so our pretty faces are not so defined?  Man, I absolutely hate Isaac Newton and his rotten theory.  

Actually it is a strange thing this getting older, as I find I get more of everything besides defining lines, like tolerance, patience, acceptance, understanding, etc.  However, I sure exercise my right as an "old folk" when I want my way, and won't budge until I get it now!  Facts-wise I am smarter, but sense-wise I am getting younger every day and take way more risks.  Life is great!

Although you touched on age in more than the physical sense in your response, Sharon, it wasn't enough for me...

Why do we as a society put so much meaning into age?

A certain way one should act, dress, make decisions, think even, according to your age.

I haven't gotten wiser because I am older. I have (hopefully) gotten wiser because of my experiences. In some areas I know more than the average person my age and in other areas I do not.

I have a somewhat playful personality. I like to have fun, be foolish and laugh. All of my friends are younger than me and I always end up with younger men. I don't think that is because I am immature (generally) but rather because I am bored with most people my age. They just aren't as active as I am.

Of course there are exceptions.
:::disclaimer:::

Some days I feel like I am being forced into a box because of my age.

Ditto here Susan.  Gosh I am 63, ALL husbands were younger than me, and all my friends are way younger.  Now that you mention it, I don't even know anyone my age come to think of it.

So, you have proven one thing - not ALL people put a lot into defining age.  I never really think about age to be honest, but sometimes you are just so right - it boxes me in and my mind has a hard time catching up to my body.  

Activity is the key!  If you want to stay young, work and play damn hard!  In my opinion, when you stop you age, then you "rust" and I vowed I was never going to die from "rust!"  Now's there's a whole other thread, "What are you afraid to die of?"  Mine, is definitely rust    

Oh I forgot to mention that my Wii age is 32, and according to testing my "health age" is 47 so I will just take that as a good sign?

With my luck though, I will probably be hit by a Mach truck! ((*^))

In answer to your question about why we "dress" a certain way at certain ages I have no clue, because I sure refuse to live within those boundaries, but you are right - they do exist!  It is in what we are taught, you change the lessons you teach the young, the outcome also changes.

This brings to mind something someone told to me recently.

When I mentioned the last guy friend I had was significantly younger than me, she informed me that I shouldn't date anyone younger than 32. She said this is because a man doesn't develop and use the frontal lope properly until said age.  What bothered me about that was that it was very inclusive. She didn't ask anything about my guy friend but rather only heard his age and made the leap that he couldn't possibly have anything to offer someone of my age.

I beg to differ.

My home is full of signs and words, here are a couple of them - one says, "Anyone looking for a husband obviously never had one," and the other, "Anyone who has not dated a younger man or woman doesn't know what they're missing."   However, another says, "Young a heart, but slightly older in other places."  

That is my point Susan, assumption and fear will kill some of the coolest moments in life, and I never pay attention to either, and just go for it.  I truly do not care what people think about what I say or do, but I also treat everyone with respect while being me.

What does concern me is the new geological age we are creating for all living things in this new "human-induced" course of destruction we are on, and that is the age I am sure worried about.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Wisdom does become more with age when it is well watered and tended along the way.  No good wisdom would expect it automatically from age but in conjunction with keeping it up through age as much as possible, instead of neglecting it in one way or another.
