What's your age (only if you wish to share)?

  1. So . . . O. K. This night is dragging. My one and only patient is still sleeping with his happy little heart a beatin' and beatin' and beatin' (thank God!)

    So . . .

    Here's another Poll. What age or age-range are you? Just curious. Makes for good reading at 4:30 in the morning while my patient's heart still beats.

    O. K. So I need to get a life!

    I'm 42 years old. My body feels about 52 years old. My mind. . . well it depends. . . anywhere between 22 and 102.

    If you don't want to answer this poll, that's cool. It will just get lost in the threads. . .

    Peace to you all . . .

    Actually, 26 to be exact. I'm just happy I'm still in the 21-30 range. Hubby just turned 30, and I spent days making horrible jokes about him being in a new age bracket whenever he fills out paperwork!

    HAHA! My old man! :chuckle

    I'm 25, for a little while longer. I'll be 26 this calendar year. One of my girlfriends and I were thinking back to when we thought that 25 was so old. And I'm no longer eligible for one of the hottest 25 under 25 on MTV anymore... (Not that I ever would have been on the damn thing to begin with)

    I'm even getting gray hair.... my auntie was totally gray by the time she was 30. Maybe that's what I have to look forward to.

    I think I'm calling the salon today to get my hair foiled. Then nobody would ever know.

    Hey, Micro - Happy Birthday, sweetie!!! Also, Congrats for going over 1,000 posts. I think you and I discovered this place at about the same time.

    My bday is looming as well - by the calendar, I'm going to turn 49. But that seems too anti-climactic, so I'm going right to 50. I've probably posted this before, because it's been my intention for quite a while.

    People tell me it's difficult to believe I'm as old as I am, but I'm pretty sure I have my age right. I even remember large stretches of it!

    nurse dennie........
    you are so right......age for me is anticlimatic...........40 didn't do much for me or warp me out either......except make me more appreciative and introspective of life.......and maybe act my real age(inside that is.....of twelve.....).....think efiebke said the peter pan principle........micro will never grow up..........and no hypocrisy here either......

    serious when needed to be.....
    but please.........i is not serious in the slightest.....

    yes.....think we did come online together.....
    thanks for the congrats......
    you are soooooo' cool...

    growing old is inevitible......................

    growing up is optional! :d

    Turned 28 this year! Always thought I'd start freaking out about closing in on 30, but it's all the way good! Gotta agree with CEN-growing up is optional, I haven't chosen to exercise that option yet in my life...:chuckle

    You go, Micro!

    I had more psychic problems with turning 31 than I've had since. I don't know why.

    The only thing that even remotely bothered me about turning 40 was it was coming to the realization that I'd NEVER be a "trophy wife."

    Dennie, the only borthday I've ever had a problem with was my 30th-I couldn't say I was in my 20's anymore.
    I will be 51 in August-no biggie. I love this time of my life. No children at home, but children to love, and grandkids! Way cool!
    The down side is that my husband is 10 years older than me, and in the last 2 years has experienced some major health problems. They are chronic, and have severely limited his activities. He is officially disabled now. That brings me down sometimes. Otherwise, I'm still a kid, at heart!
    Micro, Happy Birthday! Do you have "bony fangers" from typing >1000 messages? LOL!

    i turned 23 in february...

    i have to agree with cen....growing old is inevitable and growing up is optional.

    Just checking in to see who responded to this poll. I'm surprised that, so far, no one picked the "mind your own #@#$# business" option! :chuckle

    I'm happy and I'm 42. I totally agree with the "growing up is optional" way of thinking
