    It depends on who you ask. I was at a birthday party yesterday to celebrate a friend of my grandpa's. He turned 95. He jokingly said he turned 40. To him that is very young. :)

    When I was a teenager I used think 42 was old. Now I've passed my 42nd birthday, I think it's still quite young.

    When I was a teen I thought that around 25 you'd be married, have kids, a career, a house and a puppy to top it all off.

    And yeah, that didn't happen.

    (skip to 0:26)

    So yeah. Just live with people who look older than you. That'll solve your problem. :D




    Also, a few months ago, a couple of kids (I think one was a first grader, the other a kindergartner) asked me how many grandkids I have.

    I'm 31.



    Although around the same time, an older guy at my work guessed I was in my early 20s. I was flattered and immensely relieved. Although usually whenever somebody guesses my age, their guesses range from late 20s to early 30s. So I guess I can rest easy that I'm aging as gracefully as possible. And that's what really matters. :lol:

    Of course it's not. People need to just remind themselves they are lucky to be alive. I'll get Linda Gray to slap you @Snarky's Ghost - she'll remind you it's not old. :D And then she'll give you a hug.

    Nope!

    Not at all, 42 is like a wiser version of a 25 year old ;-)

    I'm 46 and I just ordered a wheelchair, a walking stick and a private nurse. Just in case.

    Old is 80 I think but not everyone ages as gracefully as Lady Ashley. If you dress as a 42 year old half as well and don't pretend to be half your age you'll not ask this question again next year to your 43rd.

    She looks better now that she did in "Dynasty". I think the 80's fitted her badly.
