Only if we get to choose how old we'll be on that first July 35th.

How's this: On the first July 35th, we automatically lop off 20 years. After that, it will be a one or two year lop with each additional July 35th.

One of my former students was born on Leap Year Feb 29. When she turned 20 I sent her a birthday card for a 5 year old.

Oh my gosh Babetoo! Take good care of yourself. My mom went through a time where she was fainting lots, and they ended up changing all kinds of meds before getting her straightened out. Keep after those doctors!

The problem with getting older is that it is hard work. Just when you think you have one problem solved, another creeps in. Your A1c is perfect, and then your joints start to ache. So you get a pill for that and then it is something else. You walk slower, take twice as long to finish a chore, get tired more easily. But when some says how are you feeling, you answer "fine." And you really want to believe it.

I disagree. Getting older is not hard work. I haven't done any hard work for a decade or so and I keep getting older. I guess I have the newer, automatic aging version.
