    Jokes Give It Away

    I know I am not nearly as funny as I think I am so learning that my jokes now seem dated and give away my age. I know I am getting older because my not so silly jokes give me away!

    Truth Teller

    I'm a low down dirty liar.  And a coward.  Self delusion doesn't work with me, however.  I know what I am.   I am not Michelle Pfeiffer!  There I said it.  Now, I feel better.   I also do not qualify anymore for my age range status on EP.   I haven't qualified for...

    Old Before I'm Old.

    I can now say I've lived in three decades. 1900's, 2000's and 2010's. I'm only 18. I can remember things that happened 15 years ago. I've recently said "when I was that age". I can have a full conversation with someone who is ten years younger than me. I've said, "you'll...

    Birthdays

    Time to temper the ego.  Need to face facts.  The calendar does not lie.  In a few months, my age range on my EP member ID will change to 56-60.   This is worse then when I turned 13,   I really felt back then that I could use a few more years being a kid, I feel the same...
