Quote of the Week: Getting Older

Something off of Facebook again...

Come this February, I will turn 45 years old.

As they say in New Orleans, "Come this February, I will make 45 years old."

LOL. It always made me laugh during my 2.5 years living in the city. I took me awhile to get use to the vernacular.

People don't like to tell their age. And you're definitely not supposed to ask a woman her age. I wonder why that is?

I remember when I turned 32, I proudly told someone how old I was. Why? Because there are people who didn't even live to be that old. And besides, why should I be ashamed of my age?

The older I get, the wiser I become. I have more life experience. I am better able to help someone who is going through trials and tribulations I have gone through myself, and overcame.

And I can identify all that the quote above alludes to.

Can you?


  1. I agree. I said last year on social media how I don't have a problem sharing my age because many did not make it to my age. I have never understood the not telling your age thing. I have a co-worker who avoids saying how old she is. I know she is between 55 and 60. I find it funny when she tells stories how she avoids telling the year something happened etc which could clue a person in on her age.

    1. I wonder where the keeping of ones age to oneself started? I don't know. But I won't ever be ashamed of my age.

  2. I'm going to pass this quote on to my mom who's 78 years of age. I turn 50 in February. Funny it was like just yesterday that....

    1. Dang BOP... Why did I think you were in your 20s? No wonder so much wisdom coming at me! I turn 45 in early february. We are reaching middle age, sir!
