What’s your best age?
Jack: If you could be any age you want for the rest of your life, what would you pick?
me: Hmmm…good question. I happen to really really like the age I’m at now…but if I had to pick…I would go with 30. Nice round number. And mostly because I healed quicker back then. And didn’t have allergies.
Jack: How old were you when you had me?
me: Uh… 35…(shit)
Jack: GASP! You want to go back to before there was me??!! (double interrobang! see I love that word!)
me: No NO!!! I would totally still have you. I just mean that I would be younger and have less…issues…
Jack: Well I think it’s rude.
me: Okay. I’ll pick 35 then.
me: What do you pick?
Jack: I would totally pick 14.
me: But you haven’t even been 14 yet. What if you totally don’t like that age? What’s wrong with 7?
Jack: Mom, when you’re 14, you have everything all figured out. And you don’t have to really have a job.
Do any of you have a “best” age? Where would you like the clock to stop. If at all. Hmmmmm!
