So, They Were Guessing My Age

Me and my HS batchmates during the alumni homecoming

When I went to the ladies comfort room during lunch break , the 3 utility girls were there and done with their cleaning . They were talking about their high BP and I asked them how old were they and said they were just in their 30’s yet they already have their medications for it . So I told them , I am way older than all of you yet I don’t have any maintenance medicine yet . One shyly told me “That’s what we are guessing , how old you are madam since you are still sexy , slim and beautiful . “ And when they told them I am 56 , they were surprised . They thought I was way younger . Wow , I need that kind of compliment on a Monday . I laughed because they were for a long time guessing my age .

You are young and beautiful and age is just a number. You have just proven them that. My mother in law is 62 and yet she looks like she's just in her 40s. No medication yet and no supplement either. She still goes out a lot, even to party until the wee hours of the morning.

@SIMPLYD I have no idea. I was tall for my age and always spoke as if I was older, so I guess that is why people thought I was older as a child. I wore make-up in my early teens and had older friends, so that might be why I was taken as older then. I stopped wearing make-up for the most part in my late teens, so maybe that is why people all of a sudden started to think I was younger.

@miniam IT's actually a no-no to ask older women their age . I used to get offended before when asked what my age is . However , when they will say i look younger than my age when i tell them , i don't anymore .
