This question is one that I’ve been asked a lot of times and I have to say that I don’t know the answer. I don’t know how old you are, how old your parents are, or if you even know the answer to that question. For the most part, I don’t really care, but I have been asked about it at conferences. I’ve also been asked how old you are.
I have no idea.
Well, you are going to be 17, so yeah, I guess that makes sense.
My parents are in their 60s and I am 18. I have no idea if that makes sense to you too. I think I am going to stick to the traditional approach of asking people how old they are. People say “I’m 19 and I’m single” or “I’m 22 and I’m married” or “I’m 23 and I’m a student.” That’s the traditional way, but I’m sure there are other ways and I just don’t know them.
Im sure you don’t. You could tell me that you are 18 and I would say okay, Im gonna go with the 18, but I really don’t know. There are a lot of other ways of making sense than just saying that you are 18. I mean, you might say you are 23 and Im not sure what that means.
The traditional way to ask people age is the way that I do it too, but I would say that there are some other ways to make sense of what people say. For example: “Im 22 and Im a teacher.
It’s really weird, because Ive always been really open about how old I am, but I have never really made sense of my age. I’m kind of like a weird duck, but a really weird duck. The first time I was asked what my age was, I said “I’m 28”, but the second time I was asked, I said “I’m 22”, so I was just like, “Uh, 22”. I think I was probably 23, I have no idea.
I think age is a topic that people generally don’t want to talk about. It’s not something that I want to talk about. I’m not like, “Oh, my whole life is over now, I’ve lost my job, I’m broke, I’m a failure,” or anything like that. I don’t want to talk about it.
I hate it when people talk about their age in general, and then I go and do something that goes against their generalization. I know that I am not old, but if someone says they are, they are probably wrong. I think it is a good idea to talk about age because age is so subjective.
