Re: how old are you?

OK, 55, I can't believe I one of the old fa%t$ around here. Technically I can retire anytime as I have hit the magic 55 w/30+ years of service, just that bad retirement planning bit about still having one son in high school.

Re: how old are you?

I'm 35, but for some reason today I feel like I'm about 70. This damn General Tso's Chicken I had for lunch is kicking my butt, and I just want to go to sleep...

Look 50? You may want to visit an optometrist and get them eyes checked out. I think your vision is deteriorating as a result of old age.
