69 ;)

HA!! *69*.....nice....8)
I am actually 35.....but a lot of people assume I'm a LOT younger than that because of my shenanigans on here......8) SO, the reason people ask how old you are is to get a gauge of from where the words being typed are coming from....because sometimes some VERY wise things come from a young person, and other times some of the most ignorant stuff comes from an older person......8)

Well, for how sore my back is from shoveling the other day I think I might be under-estimating my physical age!!!!
Report as

Did you stretch it? Lay on the floor on your back and pull your knees up to your chest. If your lady's home have her push your feet for you to stretch your lower back. They do it in physical therapy and its going to make so much happier!
Report as
Maybe......

35? I thought you were older! Don't ask why, I just figured you were.

You really don't understand.....I DESPISE the cold.....I would rather be sweaty and sticky from the moment I wake up than be freezing cold......and to me 60 degrees is still shorts weather 8)
Report as
You just want an excuse to run around nakey!!! That's supposed to be the high today and I'm wearing a sweat suit and tennis shoes, which I hate! I usually only wear sandels but it's too cold!!! I guess I've never experienced REAL cold so snow sounds like fun. Shoveling however does not sound like fun... I have black leather interior on my car and when you get in the car in summer it almost knocks you out. Not to mention your wearing shorts and the seats are molten. I've had more toasted buns then you want to know about. I have to keep a towel in the back seat all summer. And..... try steering with your finger nails until your steering wheel cools down!!!! Always an adventure.....
Report as
Oh yeah......I remember the steering wheel turning into the surface of the sun when I lived in NC......Leather seats are....well....you know 8).......shoveling is an experience in and of itself, you are outside in the freezing cold and yet you are sweating profusely as though it's summer on the equator!! Then there is the actual shovel itself....when the snow is of the right consistency it sticks to the face of the shovel and makes the shovel weigh an extra ten pounds, which makes you have to stop after every scoopful and knock off the extra weight so your back doesn't collapse.....and if there's ice on the ground?!?!?! Just forget about it....you'll be flat on your azz cryin in four seconds flat!!!
Report as
See that's what I have a hubby for!!!!!! Sounds like you need a husband then all your worries are over. I keep telling my hubby that we need a wife so I don't have to cook and clean but he just laughs at me...... What happened to the days of Alice on the Brady Bunch???? I bet she shoveled snow too...... Let's get an Alice!!!!!

Report as

Report as
OK she has a cute face but now she weighs 500 pounds and can't even clean!!!! I hope your happy!!!!
Report as
Why did we hire her????
Report as
Well it was fine until you made me get jealous and I had to feed her bon bons until she exploded!!!!!!!!
Report as
OK, mistakes were made on both sides.....but if we're gonna fire her, can I at least do "things" with her fat folds??????

Report as
its an unusual question for conversation.
Report as
quite true, but it's a question so..I really don't know. Like i said, there are multiple reasons for some to ask that question on a comment..probably just curious though
Report as
its a bit shocking and random when asked through comment or even sometimes through answering. I guess there are many reasons for such a odd question
Report as
Yep, just be cautious about what information you give out.

Some people just want to get an idea on the circumstance. This isn't specific to you, but for example; if somebody was asking a question about school, age would be helpful. Otherwise I think it's a bit rhetorical. x3

the questions about school and age are reasonable but when its rhetorical that's where they cross the line.

well the one who asked my age on a question about being bi was out of context =/
Report as
Knowing the age on a question about sexual orientation isn't out of context.
Report as
well it was under my answer which sounded random to me. just because I act mature for my age they question me
