    How old would you be if you didn't know how old you were?

    ~Satchel Paige


    I just saw this quote and thought I would throw it out here -

    What would you say?

    In terms of how old I feel, or how old I look?

    I guess that I was thinking of the difference in how old you feel mentally and how old you feel physically.

    Mentally, I'd say around 25/26. Physically, I don't even want to talk about it.

    BTW, I'm 22. Sad state of affairs when I've got just as many aches and pains as the 60+ yr old ladies I work with.

    A lot younger than I am, I'd say around 30 maybe :D:D
    I even look in the mirror and think I look like I always did but I know my mirror is a magic one b/c nobody else thinks so lol
    But my bod is not like it used to be. Normal wear and tear, nothing to complain about!

    Right now I feel 60 physically and 75 mentally. When I start playing with Elijah I will feel like I am 4 again both physically and mentally. BTW I am 42 gonna be 43 in a couple of weeks. When I look in the mirror I look and feel old.

    Most of the times I feel at least 2 years younger than I am; sometimes I act 5-10 years younger, BUT most of the time I act like I'm 10 years older.

    (btw - I have passed the Rubicon of 40...)

    I'm 55 chronologically, but mentally 25. I thinks its from working with freshman college students for all these years. And of course when I play with the kids, I'm 3 again. :)

    My MIL told me one time that she felt 16 until she looked in the mirror, and I thought she was crazy! Now I know what she meant.
