This is so my mother...


I don't usually repost glurge or forwarded jokes or whatever, but this just cracked me up!

I know! I'm 36 but I don't feel 36, I still feel like I'm 18, or at the very least not like a grown-up. What's up with that? Does that last your whole life?

As Wynonna said, old enough to know better, but too young to resist. :)

Oh yeah. I'm still surprised every time I look in the mirror and don't see my 20 year old self looking back at me. On bad days, I expect the 15 year old.

Oh, hush. I'm 37. Some days I feel 20, others I feel 50... but I never feel like an adult.

Heheheheh I do all that but somehow still actually get things done doing it Never what i set out to do but things get done for i multitask well like windows I get lots done just not what you wnat done!

as far as age i have resigned myself to feeling 1000 years old at least
WHY cause when you are ancient you can do what you want when you want and call everyone a whipper snapper
beisdes when you reach 1000 years old age is meaningless and you are well into your 15th childhood and can still pull rank !

You are truly eternal, and at least you've given in to your randomness. :D
