Age Old Question
Do you ever feel your age? On this day, as I turn 37, I don't feel 37. When I turned 30 I didn't feel three decades old or two decades old when I turned 20. I never felt I was whatever age I was at the time. Most certainly now. 37 conjures up images of somebody who is responsible, settled and secure. I guess it is because I do not fit the stereotypical image of a 37 year old male...gut sticking out, kids hanging on my legs, in mortgage hell and looking for a mistress. I am not saying I feel like a kid. Although I do feel a lot younger when I am around my mother. It is a strange feeling. I feel adolescent almost in the company of parents. I am happy turning 37. Even more happy that I still get carded every now and then.
