Do you forget how old you are?

I always find that up to about a week or two after my birthday, I forget that I am older and I go to tell people my age before. Does anyone else do that? Or just forget anyway?

I do occasionally forget and give the wrong age. Not all the time, and not on purpose.

Thank you for responding. I bet you're not even very old! If that pic is of you, you look about the same age as me.

I stopped remembering how old I was when I was about 25, I think it's a brain trick thing to try to keep people thinking they're younger than they are. I mean I keep forgetting how old I am, but I have two little sisters, who are more than happy to remind me! (stop it). ;P

Thanks for your respose. I think I'm doing well because I am just about remembering that I am 26 after 12 days of being 26!

Oh, thank you for choosing me as best response. :) Don't worry, soon your memory will start fading rapidly and you'll realise you don't even know what your name is, let alone your age! :p

I forget how old I am. I think it is selective memory. I also forget how much time has passed. What I mean is that I will perhaps hear a song from the mid 90s and forget that it has already been 10 years ....

That happens to me too. Someone asks what year a song came out and you think it was only a couple of years ago then realise it was 10 or even 20 years old!

I always forget how old I am for at least a month after my birthday and sometimes I just forget because I do.

I think that might last a bit longer than other ages. It's wishful thinking and you still want to be a teenager!

I've worked pretty hard to forget how old I am but it hasn't yet seemed to work. Also, people keep reminding me anyway. It's a long road...
