I have never lied about my age. If you really want to know, it is public knowledge. Go look it up. As a 'senior citizen' I am entitled to a lot of benefits that I couldn't collect before I became old enough. Now I wallow in their use. When you stop to think of it, I have lived from the outhouse to outer space. I learned to cook and bake with a wooden stove. The first phone I remember was one they call a 'candlstick.' And you had to ring up the operator to give her the three numbers of the phone you wanted to call. Everyone had a partyline. Yeah, I am an old lady.

The way I look at it, once you pass 50 it's OK if you look your age just so long as you don't act your age.

But you have to think, in that case bigger is better.

Tell that to my body right now. I am so sore, I can barely stand. My body knows how old it is.
