I know, how dare I ask that! I'm just being curious again.

And no lying!


I'm 18.



Now, how old do you feel?

I feel like I'm not born yet; so maybe -3 months, heh.

I am 51, most people say I look about 40 and I feel (on most days) about 25.

I'm 40 years young. Feel half my age but don't even wish to be there again.

Gadgetry can make me feel dated. Newfangled stuff tends to come with a remote for me to lose and I really don't care to have a programmable life.

What I do have, I want it to work without all the bells and whistles, lasers, timers, sensors, password identifiers, etc.

I blame it all on the "Clapper."

I am old enough to know better, yet youong enough to do it (and get into trouble) anyhow.

How old do I feel??? Usually too old to know what I'm doing.

What would you attempt to do...if you knew you could not fail?.

Well since I haven't met an age I didn't like yet, though I've liked none of them enough to do them twice(well I was 27 twice, which means I was never 28 and that was a rip-off!)I am temporarily 57. No nearlys, almosts or halves in my world. But for those who don't know math I'll be 58 later this year. But for now I'm half-way to 114 and living proof it is never too late for a good childhood.


P.S. Mr. Grim, how many years experience do you have at being 18?



If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

"Mr. Grim, how many years experience do you have at being 18?"

Oh I don't know Larry, not too many.



So Ess, you're either 114 years old, 72 years old or you're just messing with me again.



Man, so far I'm the youngest one on here. I know there has to be at least a few toddlers running around here somewhere.

Ed


In earlier periods of English the numbers 21 to 29, 31 to 39, etc, were referred to by saying the smaller part of the number first (e.g. the 1 of 21) and then saying the bigger number (e.g. the 20 of 21).  Thus "one and twenty" is twenty one, "two and twenty" twenty two, "three and twenty" twenty three, etc.  "Seven and twenty winters" is not that old

"Already feeling dead and done."

I hope not.

And Ed? I'm old enough to be your mother--and I'm still not entirely convinced you are not my son. Take the glasses off!

Hold the phone...

Ess, are you saying you're 27?! I don't know why I'm so shocked...


I love how some of you are using other people to reveal your age. That's awesome! Some of you might have futures in espionage. hahaha


K, that will just have to be one of those mysteries of life I guess, haha.

I’m 44, act about 14 and feel 24.

Until I talk to my sons who are 17 and 20, who make me feel about 104.

23, and I feel... 23. But I've kind of felt like I was this age for a while, and that as the years passed... I actually attained an "adult" enough age to justify my feelings? Does that make sense? But even though I've felt mature for a while, looking back shows that I felt much more mature than I was, and I'm sure the maturity of my actions is not quite on par with the maturity of my self-image. Sometimes, looking at it objectively and thorugh the lenses of those around me... 23 sometimes seems acceptably adult, and sometimes seems like I'm just a toddler. I meet a lot of old people in my career... and I can see that in my youth (and with an engagment ring on) I proceed into life full of promises and expectations... but meeting people who've been widowed multiple times, or divorced and remarried multiple times... makes me feel humble, fallible, and naive.

So... uh... I guess we'll see how it all works out in the end? This thread was more thought provoking than I expected.

I am new here, but I could not help noticing all the great answers pertaing to the question,"How old are you?"

Not too long ago I celebrated my 23 anniversaty of my 21 birthday.(That's 44)
My physical, mental, and actual age are seperate from each other.
Physically I should be 10 to 20 years older. At least that is what my body thinks.
Mentally I can be as old and wise as an owl, or as young and fresh like a spring chicken.
My actual age is that what I feel at the moment of action. Young or old or anywhere in the middle of the age line.
As young as I can feel in one moment of life, I can also feel as old in the next.
But one thing is for certain:
I refuse to grow up, it is more fun being a kid of any age than to be old and grumpy.

Bea-ing the Queen of my hive.

How old?

Chop me down
count the rings.

Listen to the song
my broken heart sings.

I'm a wee bit rough
more bark than byte.

At the end of the tunnel
I see a light.

If it's a train
I'm on the wrong track.

But it's too late now
for me to turn back.
