...your age? I spent the first half of the day Wed telling my family I was turning 38. My one sister was giving me the "almost 40 pep-talk" and I was telling her, "Well, I'm only 38 - I have two years before I can start brooding over being 40." Then I got my yearly birthday phone call from my dad.
"Hello?", "Hey, I caught you - I just wanted to wish you a Happy 39th Birthday!" "Hey, thanks! But I'm only 38." "No, I was there - you are 39."
Because of my muddled night-shift working, insomniac, mommy-brain I trust people who say I calculate things wrong. I did the math in my head - 39 - no way! I get out the calculator 2010-1971=39 Oh Man! He's right! How does someone who gets a A+ on a mid-term not know their own age? I mentioned this to my younger friend and she was astounded that I could mess that up. She swears her parents have NEVER forgotten their own ages. However, an intelligent business man friend of mine spent his entire 39th birthday telling everyone he was 40! Have you ever forgotten something about yourself like that? Is it because it's about myself that I can't remember? It's not on the school calendar, not blinking on my e-mail reminders - it's just about me. How about it - anyone else?
