    Happy Birthday MB..
    I always tell people that I'm 10 years younger than I really am. Fortunately I look much younger than my 105 years so can get away with it.

    Ironically when I tell people I'm 95 they say "Thats remarkable you only look about 85!"

    I remember a Borat sketch once when a woman revealed her age and he told her 'you look more old'.

    Good stuff.


    I recall going to a friends father 60th birthday once (about 8 years ago) and I felt really envious.


    At 60 he had a good position and salary at work with little outgoings so most of his earning was spent on about 4 holidays per year. His kids were adults so he wasn't financially responsible for them anymore. On top of being qualified for free bus pass, prescriptions and heating allowance!
