So I officially feel old (despite only being twenty-seven). It would seem that for the past six months I've been mistaken on my own age. Don't ask me how this happened because I don't have the slightest idea. And quite frankly at this point I'm starting to doubt I'd remember it even if I had known. xD

I was lying in bed trying to sleep but failing (of course it was only three A.M. I mean, who actually goes to bed that early?), and while I lay staring at the ceiling I realized that something didn't add up with my age...

I was born halfway through 1987, so how could I be twenty-eight at the start of 2015?? I ran the numbers several times and kept miscounting it. Somehow I kept concluding that I was only twenty-seven (yikes. Did I really just say "ONLY twenty-seven?). This made no sense though, as I'm twenty-eight...Aren't I?

So what do I do? I get on my Vizzed profile at three A.M. to check --of all things-- my own age! Well lo and behold, what do my eyes see under "age"? The number twenty-seven!!







Seriously? How did I forget my own age for half a year? Please tell me this has happened to at least one of you. And I'm not talking about temporarily forgetting --that can be easy to do right after your birthday. I mean forgetting for an extended period of time like I did.

I thought you two might get a kick out of this, given our going back and forth about age. Laugh at my misfortune.


Now pardon me while I go get my Geritol.

Eirinn : I did that when I joined the Army. XD I was 18 when I joined, and turned 19 while in AIT. I kept saying I was 18 until about 3 months after my birthday, when I realized I was putting incorrect info on all of my non military stuff. XD

   This same thing happened to me right when I was at that age a few years ago. For seriously almost a year I would say I was 27 when really I was 26. It took an old friend who I hadn't seen in 2 years overhear my situation and correct me. I couldn't even pinpoint where I had started going wrong...

Man, us old foggies are losing it... hahah

Mine would be the other way around.

I always say I'm 18 but I'm actually 19 (turning 20 actually) since it always slips my mind. xD I feel like I've paused the age counter in my mind at 18.

I would keep saying I'm a year younger because I would temporarily forget that a year passed, but I never heard of someone thinking they were a year older. You must have had a very vivid birthday dream.

I get that too. People ask me my age and I hesitate. I haven't had a birthday celebration in quite some time, so I don't really remember exactly how old I am at any given moment... Gotta do the math when I need to fill stuff out. XD

I make this mistake a lot!

I recall a time in the 6th grade when one of my classmates asked me how old I was, I literally replied "10?.....12? Oh wait, 11!" (a stupid mistake especially at a young age too haha) My classmate just looked at me weirdly and thought I was stupid or something after that moment.

Eirinn : LOL! Well, at least you found that you were younger and not older! Well, I blank out on my age all the time, especially when someone asks me, but never for an extended period of time like that. And of course you were up at 3 A.M. thinking about that, that's the way it usually happens for me. I'll forget something that I wanted to remember all day, but when I am trying to sleep that's when my backup drives will kick in and I'll remember!

Dragoon26 : Oh man, that has to be the best post of the day. xD How about saying we forget because we have so much stuff to retain in our over-achieving genius brains?
Now how long before the hearing starts to go for us? Uh...I mean....E = mc2!

Juliet : Paused the mental age counter at eighteen? We can do that? It isn't denial per se.... more like an ego defense mechanism. lol If you need any good recipes that use prunes, just ask me. I have plenty...if I can remember where I put them.

zanderlex : Ikr? Imagine my relief when I realized I was actually younger than I thought. lol I'm used to hearing my mom forget her age, but that thought certainly doesn't make me feel any better! I thought I was still too young for that. xD

F. Starr : You know what? That actually makes a lot of sense. I haven't done anything special for my birthday in a long time either. That would explain losing track of a number like that. At least I've yet to fill out any forms with the wrong age. lol

ghostfishy : lol! An eleven year old forgetting their own age. Good stuff. xD Reminds me of one time when a guy asked me what grade I was in, and all I could say was "...uh...I don't know. I just know I'm not done with it yet!".

FaithFighter : Aye! Like I told Zander, you can imagine my relief when I realized I was actually younger than I thought. lol And my mind kicks in overdrive the minute I hit the bed. So many things to do, so many ideas for work, and whatever else it can think of.

Eirinn : Lol, I'm not really sure. It's not like I hate being older than 18; I actually want to hit 20's as soon as possible since I'm already tired of the "teenager" label. I just really forget I'm already more than 18 years old most of the time. xD Like "Wait, the last time I remember I was 18. How many years have already passed since then?" or "Yeah I'm 18. Oh- wait, I guess I'm not."

Eirinn : That doesn't really happen to me at all. I always know how old I am...I have never forgotten my age before. In my case, my birth certificate says that I was not only born on July 12th, I was born at 12:03am. Every year on the night of July 11th, my parents tell me happy birthday right after midnight because well, that's literally when I was born. And sometimes, we've even gone out to eat before, again, on the night of July 11th for my birthday...on July 11th.

The point I'm trying to make is its easy for me to keep track of my birthday because of how early I was born on that day. On July 11th for some odd reason, I immediately start to think about my birthday, and my impending new age. Ever since I turned 25, every year I say "now I'm halfway to 50, 52, 54, etc."

But now that you know I'm 5 days older than you, just look out for my birthday instead of yours. That might be a way to keep track of your age a little easier. Or it could be the fact that...dare I say...its a sign that you're just getting old XD XD XD

Juliet : Ah, then I'll have to make a mental note to make a big fuss about your twentieth birthday then. Expect the thread.

MattyIce : Oh I have no trouble remembering when I was born, and until this happened I had never had trouble remembering how old I was. I do tend to forget a lot of things though. Also I was born at 3:45 A.M. Fun facts.

May I redirect you to the Geezer Corner?

I sometimes forget shortly after a birthday but not for long.

In school, I'd often say I was a year older than I really was in order to avoid any awkward conversations about age.
That would sometimes lead to me accidentally filling out a wrong number on school forms.

I think as you get older you try and forget that you are getting older, cause you are getting that much closer to death lol.
I have forgotten my age for many long periods at a time, like right now I'm not really sure how old I am, even if I look at my profiles on different sites I'm like huh?
I think at the end of the day you're only as old as you feel, so I'm probably going to remain about 25 for a few more years yet :p

Most days I can't remember if I'm 16, 17 or 18 (I'm pretty sure I'm 17), I tried asking my dad but he didn't even seem to remember either..

This used to happen to me from time to time. Typically with more insignificant ages. First time that happened to me, I was 23. Nothing special about that age. It happened again last year when I was 26. Kept having to sit and think because I knew my birth year, so I had to work it out to get my age because I just couldn't remember. Mainly because I just don't really care anymore
