This topic was not brought on by my overwhelming anxiety about approaching middle age or the realisation in the car this morning that it was actually 20 years ago that it was 1998 and not 10. Nope. Not at all. LV, let's talk about age, the measuring of the passage of time one has been alive that is a terrifying concept to some (typically those who are realising that time IS passing and they're not as young as they used to be), just a number to others (those old enough to have gotten used to it), or not something often thought about at all (by those too young to know better). So how old are you, and how old do you feel by comparison? Does it feel like only yesterday you were several years younger, or do you still feel young at heart? Has your age ever affected your self-perception, or the way you conduct yourself? Do you still rejoice when your birthday comes around, or groan in despair? ...also how old do you have to be, in your estimation, before you can say that you're old? How old is "old" to you?
