how old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?
i'm 37. some tell me i'm young, some think i'm old. i go back and forth. i consider myself a very responsible person. i have a job, a family. i pay the bills on time. i make sure my kids eat their vegetables and get to school every day (and most days they are even wearing matching socks). when my kids wake up in the middle of the night, i am right there with them, holding them, comforting them, waiting for them to fall back asleep. and i still wake up the next day, throw myself together and get to work on time...because i'm a responsible adult.
and some days, i act like a college student. i wear short bright, dresses and sing karaoke and drink beer. i stay up late on saturday nights and eat taco bell at 2 am.
however, those late nights, i am still responsible. i take a cab, drink two large glasses of water before going to bed, and most of those nights, i still think to wash my face and moisturize. because even though i'm acting like i'm 21, i am still 37. (and i know there is no sleeping in the next day.)

the nights of falling asleep at 9 and waking up to a scared kid far outnumber the nights of falling asleep at 2. but that's not to say the 2 am nights never happen. i know my age and i know my responsibilities....but if you were to ask me how old i felt, i would not say 37. i'd probably put myself at a cool 28, sometimes 21, sometimes 50. (those nights where i accidentally fall asleep at 8 watching law & order reruns...law & order is the new perry mason, right?) basically, what i am trying to say is that i feel younger than i am. i might not look younger, or act younger at all times, but i definitely feel younger, and i consider that a good thing.
so...if you didn't know your age, how old would you think you are?
