This is going to sound absolutely weird to anyone younger, but I spent all last year thinking I was 56 years old. I hit October 13th this year, and went to the trouble of adding up my age on my fingers, and wham. I'm 56 THIS year.
It's like going to the life bank and finding an error in your favor.
Does screw up my figuring on Social Security and all that.
I guess you just really don't spend much time on thinking about your age when you pass 50 or so.
People ask me when stuff happens, and I'll say something like, "Oh, about 3 or 4 years ago," and Linda will dig me in the ribs and say, "Try 8 years...."
Time is whipping by so fast, I just added a year to make sure I was caught up.
