“How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?” – Satchel Paige
“I’m getting old” is a common phrase heard from someone who is groaning while standing up, hand on their lower back supporting the tightness and pain. A common reply might be “age is but a number”, and this is very true. Our age often defines us, but what if your birth date was never recorded. If the record of your age is only how you look and feel, what age do you think you would be? If your real age is 40, if you’re in great shape and healthy the answer may be lower, and higher if you are carrying a few extra pounds and added stress. The truth is once you get older, age may as well be measured as years remaining rather than years lived. So how old are you?
