    How Old?

    There are times I answer without hesitation, "Twenty-two." That's the age that I think my mind left off at before I lost my mind. 8) When asked, "Wasn't that last year?" or anything like that, I actually have to stop and think about it because I could have sworn I was twenty-two...

    Yes, I do, retardedly so. One time at a deposition. Everyone laughed at me. It was in legal papers for everyone to see. It was written up as: Lawyer: How old are you? Me: Uh.. te-elev-THIRTEEN. (laughs) ... Bastards. >:(

    When people ask me about personal information, like age or last name, I usually know it's coming. And those times, when I KNOW what I'll be asked to answer - those are the times I seem to forget it all. "How old are you?" *mind goes blank* Eerr.....I'm.....*calculates birth...

    That's Pretty Funny

    I know it sounds stupid, but I actually do sometimes forget how old I am. Lol. I have to go back and count the years and remember just how old I really am. Isn't it a little early in life for me to be slipping into senility?

    Does It Matter?

    Every birthday since I was 25 or so I have to pause and work it out, I guess it's because it's really not an important issue for me. Like the saying goes "You are only as old as you feel"

    I very seldom can remember my age!  It would be easier to just say I sometimes remember how old I am, but not very often.  If I go by what seems like my age, well that's easy, I feel the same as I have since around thirty. Well actually it was my thirty second birthday...

    Me Old?

    - no, I don´t forget. But my age is only a number. 78 is a number, not much more. The line from birth to this moment is really not a metric line, subdivided by years. It is not a ruler with even distances between the marks. The moment of life begins in eternity before now, we...

    Slips My Mind

    Whenever people ask me how old I am they give me this weird look because it takes me a minute to remember. For some reason I always go to say 19. I don't do anything for my birthday (another thing I forget all the time) so the years just kind of slip by without me noticing.

    because I'm acting younger than my age. But I'm happy with it. I can help myself forget that I'm growing old that always makes me depressed.

    Being 20 has it's highs and it's lows, but when you were in care, it makes these somewhat harder in some circumstances. I still feel like I am a 13 year old stuck in this body that has grown up before me; my domestic skills purely for survival. It's like those adverts, when you...

    I Sometimes Feel Too Young.

    I think sometimes when I feel inferior or too shy to speak up, I have to remember that I am old enough for people to take me seriously. Sometimes, I feel like I am 10 rather then 17. I am not even 13. I am almost legal, so shouldn't I feel older?
