    A Question To Free Your Mind.

    How old would you think you are if you didn’t know how old you are?

    Depends.
    When I wake in the morning I feel like 90.

    During the day I feel like 25, until I try to do something that would be easy for a 25-year-old.

    From the hips to the thighs I am 60.
    From the thighs to my feet I am 80

    My mind thinks it's 21, my body thinks it's 45. My actual age lies somewhere in between.

    AGE??

    I thought fine wine and champagne aged.
    You mean we should be counting our years....OK. I will Never Grow Old!

    It is not a number of years it is a place of spirit and mind.

    A lot of people (people at work, customers I talk to on the phone or just any person I meet on the street) think i'm a lot older then I actually am. Not because I have wrinkles or anything like that

    but they say I "sound" a lot older. When I tell them i'm coming up 23 this month they reply: O my god, you're only a baby!

    So I guess my minds age is about twice my actual age

    If we didn't know how old we were how would we understand the definition of "old"?

    If we cannot use the word "old" as a definition then how do we associate our time spent living with our time left until death, and what would our answer imply if we were to guess what you wanted to hear?

    If I lived to be 90 and another gentleman across the street lived to be 70 then wouldn't his 35 be the exact equivilant to my 45? If so how do we go about defining age exactly if there is a separation of 10 years between the formula used in the attempt to mutually understand the definition of "old"?

    When someone asks me how old I am "35" always comes into my head, then I have to calculate my actual age.
