No birthday. Just saying or thinking out loud. I'm 38 so about halfway there. Halfway closer to death? Men in my family don't get much past mid 70's. The women make it to mid 90's or better.

You are nothing but a toddler. I am pushing 80.

My old man made to 82 before going with lung cancer, mama was 67 when she went from colon cancer. Nice odds huh?

The kids on my street like to make me feel old. I look up and the middle-schooler across the street is now a freshman in college.

But then I come here and suddenly I don't feel so old anymore :P (I'm 21).

54 here. I know the feeling, becoming aware that one is about half-way there. That is more or less the cause of mid-life crisis: realising that the time you can reasonably expect to have left is something you can imagine, because it is the same or less than what you have already experienced.

Don't worry about it. Life goes on, and the feeling "I don't feel that old" doesn't go away.

Get used to it: a year is a shorter amount of time every year. 😉

Yep. Time goes by sooo damn fast. Each year is faster it seems. Yet don't feel that old at same time. Then when you see kids that you knew as tykes really up in years you wonder what the hell happened.
