You're not old. You're a wee babe.

How do I know this? Because I'm not old, and you're younger than me. Thus, you can't be old. It's logically impossible. QED

You have forgotten an important factor. I am woman; therefore, I am illogical.

No one else is old! Just me. Seriously. I will tell you vehemently that my 86 year old grandmother is NOT old. And I'll mean it. But I am old.

You are reminding me of (shockingly enough) my brother.

When The Wife and I were shopping for a bigger car, so we could cart around The Boy, my brother told us that we couldn't buy a minivan, because only old people drove those, and if I got one, I would be old, and therefore, he would be old.

This was especially funny, since my brother is 18 months younger than me.

And we bought the minivan anyway.

I felt old when I got my first minivan because guys stopped flirting with me from their cars on the road. Very depressing.

because you are a baby. Worse, you want to STAY a baby.

i'm not a baby!!! :p

i just dont want to grow up. EVER! growing up is no fun.

although, daddy says when you're a grown up you can piss away mortgage money on toys!

i'm not growing up. no one should. SO THERE!
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: January 25th, 2005 06:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
You are a baby. You are 22. And you want to claim that you're not 22. Therefore, you are a baby in denial.

And I wholeheartedly disagree that "no one should" grow up.

22 isn't a baby! this is the OLDEST i've EVER been!

so there!
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: January 25th, 2005 07:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
a 6 month old is the oldest they've ever been, but I'm sure you wouldn't deny, from your perspective, that they are a baby.

Anyway, it wasn't you that made me feel old. It was Jon.

but i'm not a baby.

*as i go and have a hissy fit*

You are not old - I have a rule - you can't complain until you are at least over 30.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: January 25th, 2005 06:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
you know the odd part? I don't think I'll feel AS old when I'm thirty.
From: lola100 Date: January 25th, 2005 06:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
That is pretty odd. The one thing that makes me feel old is having a 7 year old. I clearly remember being 7. That really freaks me out.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: January 25th, 2005 06:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
turning 28 freaked me out because my mother was 28 when I have my first, consistent, clear, relatively accurate memories of what she was like at that age. I was a little freaked by that.

29 is weird because I feel like, "who are you kidding?" It's like I feel like I'm being deceitful saying I'm in my 20s. Sure I am, but not REALLY...not for much longer. At least at 30 it'll be over with. And then I can once again say I'm "in my early [decade]" while now all I can do is say I'm in my "late twenties" EEK.

just to spite you (and everyone else here trying to console you), you're so OLD

ha ha ha

in all honesty, you're only as old as you feel, so feel young and live young

oh I know that. I don't feel like the years have uselessly passed me by or anything. I love my life. I just can't figure out how yesterday I was walking around Roosevelt sure that I'd be at Alumni band every year like clockwork and now, 11 years later, I've never been, I have a house, I have a car, I have a kid, I have real, adult furniture, I have friends with 4 kids, I have a 401K, I have mutual funds, I have a mortgage, I have a husband... it's just... WEIRD. WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN?
rebelzero From: rebelzero Date: January 25th, 2005 07:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
as someone who only has 2 out of that list you just gave, I'm not quite sure. I'll see if anything changes that much to me in the next year and I'll let you know
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: January 25th, 2005 07:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
golly, I didn't know you were looking for a husband.
rebelzero From: rebelzero Date: January 25th, 2005 07:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
well I have the car and furniture - beyond that, I suppose I'm just without. And none of my friends have 4 kids yet. Emphasis on yet.

Yeah you are old, that is why I sent you a present, to soften the blow :)

Wait til you hit 35, now that is depressing!
