I hope that none of you was inconvenienced by the tremors in the earth yesterday. You see, I did a terrible thing yesterday. I did the unthinkable. I told my age.

Age in my husband's family has always been a deep, dark secret. They feel that a woman should never reveal her age. I, on the other hand, feel age is a thing to be celebrated. After all, isn't it great to add another year?

I have a sister-in -law who actually gets insulted when anyone, even a doctor, asks her her age. She's well up there, quite a bit older than I (she has a daughter who is 7 years younger than I). I'd consider it quite an achievement to make it that far and I would shout it from the rooftops, if anyone would listen.

Anyway, again, I hope you weren't inconvenienced by the tremors and noise. It's just my husband and mother-in-law spinning in their graves.

Hope they'll be okay! Lol!
I too tell my age. I just don't get the point in lying about it.

Telling my age doesn't bother me. It explains away the added pounds, the wrinkles, the forgetfulness. Telling my weight is another story! Ouch! That hurts!

age is just a number... no tremors necessary ;)
