Age Math

If   you are going to lie about your age, add a few years. Or a decade.

For example, if you’re 42 you won’t get much of a reaction if you tell   people that you’re 38.   But tell them that you’re   in your   50s,   and watch the compliments really start to fly!   Huge, free ego boost.

I cannot believe I have never thought about this before. From here on in, I am 55. Thanks!

Until someone says, “Yeah, that’s about what I would have guessed”. Poo.

Andrea is correct. I tried it once and the response was “oh”. So I guess I look older than I am.

OMG…I so did that when I was way younger. Of course I added too much one time and people fell out laughing. It didn’t help that I probably looked five years younger than I was.

Those days are gone.

This is the best tip ever. A serious genius must have written it.
