Getting Old Today

Lady Bracknell: Thirty-five is an extremely attractive age. London is full of women of the highest birth who have, of their own free choice, remained thirty-five for years!

The Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde.

Birthday Cake

I’m not thirty-five, yet, but this quotation always pops into my head when people talk about getting old, which (particularly younger) people tend to do around birthdays. I’ve always believed in loyalty: finding an age you like and sticking with it.

I was going to try and come up with something profound about growing up or age just being a state of mind or what-have-you, but really, what I’m going to say today is this:

Happy birthday to everyone who shares my birthday, which happens to be today. I hope you all have a wonderful day.

And it’s only three months until Christmas…

    • Thank you 🙂 I think you’re only as old as you feel – numbers are just numbers. Not like they’re standardised or anything…(or is that just numbers on clothes…?) Far more important to be young at heart, anyway 🙂
