Have you ever lied about your age? I’ve never lied about my age, but for years people thought I was a lot younger than I was….then I became a typical ‘ageless adult’ of a nonspecific age as people think of adults. Many years ago I was at a hardware store that gave people senior discounts….I was only 41 at the time and looked pretty daggone good. (in a well preserved in shape kind of way, anyway). Well, the cashier rang up my purchase and gave me the senior discount (she was no kid herself). I said I’m not a senior citizen! She shrugged and said ‘honey, don’t look a gift horse in the mouth’….LOL. I told my folks later that day and my dad laughed so hard he cried. He said ‘welcome to our world, baby’…..I guess that was the day that people were no longer going to think I was younger than I actually was. I had crossed over the mystical Rubicon and I wasn’t too pleased!
