18 (19 in about a month and a half), and joined PWEB when I was 14. Or 13. I forget when in 8th grade it was. But wow, I've been here for a while. Not as long as some, but wow.

you snooze, you lose
well I have snozzed and lost
I'm pushing through
I'll disregard the cost
I hear the bells
so fascinating and
I'll slug it out
I'm sick of waiting
and I can
hear the bells are
ringing joyful and triumphant

27, joined when I was 22.

However, in two months I'll be in the 28-30 age group.

Which is why I voted now. Let me feel young while I still can.

... I usually think of others as the same age as me, unless they talk about High School (so I realize they are younger) or talk about their really cool professional-sounding job and/or family, and I get the impression they are older. ... I'm actually surprised by a lot of your ages. And then there are people like Ela who talk about their age so much, you can't forget. :)

I wonder if this is because I still have more stupid drama in my life than one would expect for a 30 yr old. Or I could assume it's because the pictures you've seen of me look so youthful. :wink:

I'm wondering if we have to apply the FCF to any of these ages... You know, the Female Correction Factor. After a woman turns 29 she magically turns 25 again at her next birthday. :wink:

That's what my Dad does. He turned 29 every year until I turned 20. Then he started admitting to 39.

I'm 21 now, joined at....16? Something like that.

Along the topic of conversation, and on a more somber note that I've been reminded of by the topic of age.

My parents (dad and step-mom) always had a running joke. Their birthdays were 10 days apart (otherwise they were the same age), with my dad's first. Each and every year for 10 days my step-mom would tease him about his age. It was cute. At his funeral, the pastor (who was a good friend and who had seen this teasing in action) made sure to mention dad's younger wife. I know he would've laughed.
