The other day I heard a 24 year old woman refer to herself as old. I snickered and remembered my oath to self when I was about the same age. I recall thinking: "If I'm saying I'm old now, what am I when 34? And when 44? I may as well say I am young and always compare with the ones 15 years my senior regardless of my age. That way I will walk through life feeling young". Why is getting old such a tabu thing for women? I wonder what the fuss is about? I seriously don't get it.
