I have always wondered why people knock a few years off their age, as if embarrassed about when they were born. You hear people thinking 'yeah, and the rest'. My thoughts are - why not ADD five years, then everyone will think how good you look for your age!
I've always been honest and quite amused about being 40, then 50, but 60 - I don't like this one. A give-away to celebrate a birthday is such a nice idea. I've decided to have a give-away in October, not to celebrate but to help take my mind off this one! Details later.
