Wanna Know My "Real Age"?

As usual, I visited my good friend Petula's blog over at It's a Woman's World and she's interested in knowing your "real age". I, too, have had instances where someone was mistaken about my "real" age. Allow me to briefly tell...

When I was about 32, I went into a liquor store to purchase beer for my husband. We're in a small town and some of the workers in the store know me by name. This particular day, the worker didn't know me nor did I know him. I thought I was going to make my purchase and high tail it out but noooo. I went in the store with only my form of payment and no identification--thinking I didn't need it. I put the beverage on the counter and the sales person asked to see my ID. I politely laughed and said I was old enough to purchase the item. I cooperatively ran out to the car to grab my purchase and handed him my ID. He apparently looked at my DOB and said "you look like you're no more than 19". I said, "WHAT", smiling the entire time. I was truly flattered and have told this story ever since.

Anyway, getting back to the subject at hand. I took the RealAge Test and my results are...drum roll please...my "realage" is 43.6, 4 years more than my original age. I don't think that's bad at all. The reason for my increase is because, I don't do any type of physical activity AND my weight is an issue. Other than that, I'm fine. I need to get it movin' and really increase my physical activity.

No, that's not too bad! The other day I guy told me he thought I was 25 or something like that. My head has been big ever since. I guy today stopped what he was doing when I said I was 40. The look on this face was priceless. :D It feels good to look young, huh? Thank God for the good genes.
