31.

I think the transition to adulthood occurred at 25... when I realised with a sinking feeling that I would henceforth no longer tick the box marked '19-24' on marketing questionnaires, but the box marked '25-34' [Frown]

Torty-tree and a turd.

Old age is like some clinical Chinese torture... or is it just me? My hair's started to look like straw and flour - the Universe seems to be in some sort of focus conspiracy... either that or my eyes are going... and when I'm shopping I tend to go for shoes that look comfortable... and I'm starting to wish that I could pull off wearing a smoking jacket...

I'll be voting for that nice Mr Duncan Smith, next...

30. 31 in December. I started feeling old when I was older than most of the magazine centerfolds. It's almost to the point where I think of our (for example) Olympic athletes as "those kids".

I turned 40 years old on Saturday.

I spent half the day in the gym, and the other half with dancing girls of all ages. Mmmm.

However, on the bright side, Oct 31 is also All-Saints day (or something like that) when Martin Luther, one of my heros, pinned his 93 theses to a door of a Catholic cathedral over in England and started the Reformation. So I think I celebrate that instead.

And on another bright side, it's only a year and 18 days until I get my drivers permit! It gives me something to look forward to.

My boss' boss' boss over the summer (el supremo bosso) looked exactly like a harry potter, and his glasses were nearly perfect too! and he was grosly incompetent and would never pay me.

Ahh..... those 90 and some odd theses, can't forget the Catholic Reformation too (inquisition)!

i started to feel like a responsable adult a few years ago, but luckily it wore of pretty quick.

i'm old enough to have been, seen it, done it. not too old to realise that there's still loads of stuff to find.

"In your forties, your oddities officially become eccentricities. It's the dividing line. People in their thirties don't have the stature to sustain respect for their stranger behavior."

I'm 41. I woke up one day and said "Holy Cow! (or rather, unprintable words to that effect) What happened to my LIFE?! I got OLD!"

I can pass for thirty if I want to, though I'm proud of all the grey hair, having earned every single one.

The great part about being old and eccentric is that you have more social power. I can, for instance, wear my handmade Elizabethan blackwork fencing shirt to work with my suitcoat vest and a suitably demure skirt, and garner nothing but compliments. If I did that twenty years ago, people would have simply assumed I'd forgotten the SCA event was over and made snide comments all day.

On the other hand, if you've ever seen Robin and Marian, getting old has its drawbacks when it comes to running around in the woods all day and then sleeping on the ground.

I was asking the spungster, but anyway, I'm sure you're wrong about that. [Wink]

I was being fascitious. People with severe emotional problems, not mentioning any names, were usually ignored or unloved as children. [Roll Eyes]

WooHoo! How old are you thread is back, and with vengeance. [Smile] It seems that old treads never die, they just return after old ones get into archives.

Anyways, I can own up to be 20 already. Which means that I grew up since the last time I was around (that was not to be expected, wasn't it? [Wink] )

As for the got old thing, here's the old saying that has been cruising the net for the past... past... Well, it is quite old. [Wink]

It says: Growing old is mandatory. Growing up is optional.

Hmm... Another thing. Usually my age, as in mental age, is a number which is both negative and complex and irrational... and most of all... random. [Razz]

That's why I never had kids. Far too many ways to screw them up. I prefer animals-all you need to do is love them. And I don't mean that like spungo does when he says he loves animals. [Roll Eyes]
