The Age Poll

Don't be shy! Post your age! I'm turning 22 next month assuming I don't get run down by stupid tourists in the meantime.

I turned 40 in June but as far as I'm concerned it's just a number. I'm in the best shape of my life; I'm having the most fun I've ever had; and, I can afford the toys I want and am healthy enough to enjoy them!

I'm on the cusp of your age limits....so not sure what to choose. I'm in one group right this minute, but move into the next group up, next month.

2 1/2 months left until mid life crisis sets in. I told myself by the time I was 40 I would have a Porsche and I am looking for one now. I just don't know if I will be able to afford driving it..

If you're on the edge, pick whichever group you'd rather take! I just noticed people who are 65 are going to have trouble with my divisions since there's overlap.

A random FYI: the reason I left such a wide gap in the 40s is because my parents were in their forties during my teenage years, and the whole time they seemed to stay the same age. When I moved out they started seeming a little older, so that's where I put the next bracket.

It's comforting to hear that people can be middle-aged and still be in great shape. I want to be that way too... seeing my obese relatives with all sorts of blood and heart problems serves as good motivation!

Old enough to know better, too young to care.

Blondie, you're gonna go to hell for lying like that...but when you finally do hit 30 (in what, 4 or 5 years?) you'll have gained that wisdom.

I am 55 and you know what I have learned? Life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer you get to the end, the faster it goes.
