I don't really,mainly because i have seen so many elderly people who still seem to be enjoying life,loving,having fun-in fact happier than many
younger folks.Also,i never could grasp the concept of "act your age"-i have really,truly felt the same since i was a kid(even then i felt
young+lighthearted one day,a thousand years old the next) and though i do think i gained through experience a measure of wisdom and deeper insight
than say,in my 20's,i honestly have always basically felt the same.
I was never any age to start with,and i am not now,though my chronological age is almost 48.I think it shows on your face,and in your body if you do
not have any specific expectations pertaining to a certain age.I have been mistaken for my 21yo daughter's big sis on quite a few occasions-and by
other women-the toughest audience
And although i lived a hectic,very self-destructive lifestyle for many years,till i had my oldest gal at age 27,clubbing,pubbing,drugging and being a
complete pisscat,being in car and bike accidents,lots and lots of stress,and still smoke like a paratrooper(my only vice these days) i am still in
hale and hearty health.Well,except for getting out of breath sooner than a non-smoker.I believe this too,is because i have never expected to become
"decrepit" or dramatically less spry once i reach a certain age.I had my son at the age of 41,and it was much the same as my other pregnancies-i never
felt completely well while pregnant,pregnancy is just not a thing that sits well with my particular physiology.
The nurses at the hospital where i had my son(by caesarian) looked at me like i was an alien when,a few hours after giving birth,i walked out to the
room's balcony(i Need to spend a little bit of time outside every day) I was tethered to: a drip that was attached to one of those heavy trolley-style
monitors,like dragging a heavy lil cupboard with you,a catheter,and a wound drainage bag too.All this without underwear to keep it in place
still don't know to this day how the Hell i managed that,but i was going out to look at the stars,any which way, i would have oozed if i had to!
I guess i can sum it up by saying-i am no age,i just live,till my exit point,which is going to be an awesome adventure!
