I am a middle child of 8, there has always been a joke "how old is Val?" And, because I am older than 50 I've carried this question on to boyfriends, doctors, getting a senior discount at the movies, etc. I really don't know how old I am. I really tell my doctor that, and I really had a boyfriend for 4 years who thought I was 5 years younger than him.....
I watched Portlandia on Netflix the other night. Fred had this same problem. His girlfriend didn't know and his mom wouldn't say, and his doctor kept saying "it's just math - you were born in .....". But they never said it! Just like my life - thank you!
My mom used to yell out "well you were born when we got the big RCA TV....it must have been 1959 because the shakers were a bonus." recently she gave me the RCA S&P shakers, maybe because she didn't really remember how old I was? Thanks Mom! What is age anyway, just a number right?
