My 44th birthday was yesterday. I can no longer honestly say I’m in my “early forties.” Now I’m in my “mid-forties.”
This getting older stuff sneaks up on you. The other day I was thinking about a particular woman who is in her thirties, and I thought, “Yeah, she and I are in the same age group.” But are we? Thinking a little further, I realized with shock that I’m ten years older than people in their mid-thirties.
Interesting. When did that happen?
When I think of “younger people” or “younger women,” I think of people in their early twenties or so, but now, people in their early to mid-thirties are “younger” to me. Kinda funny.
