Birthday Countdown: Round Two

I would first like to say that I have not bailed on my prize winners...it is coming! I promise!
That Target gift card is as good as in your hands and spent! I just haven't made it to Target yet...

Secondly.... I am starting my second birthday countdown... As it is now 358 days until my next birthday.....


HA!

Just kidding.... I am actually going to countdown to my husband's birthday which is on
May 11th, exactly 6 days from now.
He was born on Mother's Day, 1980.

Turning 29.. his last "twenties" birthday.

So, in honor of his birthday, I am going to try to get him to comment on my blog everyday for the next 6 days by asking HIM a question. Please check back to comment on his answers. They are sure to be interesting.

Question Number One for Corey's birthday countdown:

Does turning 29 make you feel old? and WHY?!

There will be no contest for this one. The last one about broke me! ha ha!


In case he boycotts my countdown, would some other people answer the question to make me feel better? :)

Not really, but I have not been really paying attention to my age since I was 16. I got my drivers license and that was really the last time I cared about it. I know that sounds kind of bah-humbug, but it is the truth.

On a similar note, i was 7 going on 8 when my dad turned 30 and Katie will be about the same age when I turn 30. I remember that every time he got agitated I thought he was having a mid life crisis. So according to my calculations about life expectancy 20 some odd years ago, I am cresting the hill...

They say "you are only as young as you feel", but I think for you it should add, "and you are only as young as you act"....

'You are only as young as you feel' is one of the most depressing statements ever - sometimes I feel very old.

Even more depressing: 'You are only as young as your oldest organ.' Think about that one.


I work with a lot of people who are fresh out of college and 26 seems very old to them. I believe the ideal age(s) to be is 23-28. Sorry Corey.

Your second quote has me extremely confused.

I don't want to hear about it....
I have to agree with Chris though. If you are only as young as you feel, then that is depressing on many a day, because I have always felt much older then my physical age!

If you have the heart of a 50-year-old, or the lungs of a 60-year-old, or the fill-in-the-blank of a fill-in-the-blank...no matter what age you happen to be, when it goes, you go.
