Right now I'm feeling a little righteous indignation! I just took an online test about your real age --- I should have know better, but a few years ago I took this same test and was about 5 years younger than my chronological age.
Well, when I took their stupid test today, thinking man, I bet I'm at least 5 years younger than my actual age, Robert and I have been walking, we just got home from vacation and all is good. You can tell where this is going can't you. I answered all the questions honestly (part of me wanted to lie, but I didn't) and then the site had the nerve to tell me I am 4.6 years OLDER than my chronological age!!!!!!
Now part of their reasoning for being older than I am just pretty well sucks! I'm older because I don't have a dog, my mother-in-law died, I don't eat enough fiber, I don't know my blood pressure and an aunt had breast cancer. Looking at that list I think I might have control over two of them. I could check my blood pressure at Walmart --- real accurate I imagine --- and I could eat more fiber. The other stuff, not so much control over.
I would love to have a dog, but hubby says no and getting a dog isn't worth fighting with him about. My mother-in-laws death ---well it is sad, and it has caused some stress in the family, but it really hasn't affected me directly (oh, that sounded colder than I intended -- Helen was a lovely lady and we had a good relationship if no a close relationship and I will miss seeing her). And as far as the aunt having breast cancer ---I get regular check ups what more can I do?????
However on a lighter note that just wandered into my brain --- I have lied about my age for years by adding 5 years to it --- yes you read that correctly --- add 5 years. The reasoning was that by adding 5 years I look pretty dadgum good for person that age maybe not so much so for a person my real age. :) So my health age and my lie age are the same ---- Go figure. :)
