sans eyes, sans teeth, sans everything

If you could stop your body from aging at any point in your life, what age would you want to stay at and why?

My first thought was 28 ... but I have no real deep memories from that age, so perhaps that is just because it starts with 20 and ends with my favourite number.  That was back in 1999.  (painful to write)

So my next choice would be right stinking now.  I had a physical, did routine bloodwork and everything came back fine just fine.  Apparently I still look younger than I really am, so I would love to hold on to that forever.  I do not like aging.  I could not ever imagine myself working in an old age home, either.  I do like having teenagers ... they keep me young.  When my boys are gone from this house, I have no idea how I will stay in touch with the young people. 

I can still stay up ridiculously late and function the next day ... usually.  I still like cool music.  I dress young enough and I guess that's mostly what trips people up.  I have my tattoos and my piercings, a hair colour I really like and financially I cannot complain.  I have friends all over the world, literally, and thanks to the internets I can keep in touch with almost all of them. 

so maybe 28 wasn't so fantastic.
maybe staying "here" is just fine and dandy.
I must be growing up.

8 is my favorite number too ( You look fantastic so yes, hold onto it! Love the skin you're in! :-) I hate aging too and it's sneaking on me in ways I didn't anticipate.
