The 30 year old child

PC and I are at lunch discusing Berlusconi and the Italian elections. The Italians have a dubious reputation when it comes to exit polls, so although it seemed that Prodi was home and dry yesterday, one really can't say that today. So we are discussing 3rd world countries and how portugal and spain both recorded coups in the 70's. PC is gisting me of the coup in Portugal in '75 and how it was actualy precipitated by a coup in Angola (interesting). I am like '75 huh? thats the year of my birth' and he looks at me astonished. The he starts laughing. I am looking at him and wondering whats up. 'You are a child!' he ecxlaims. PC likes to feel ancient, always accusing me of disrespecting my elder (mon yaju si agba) whenever we are arguing, meanwhile he is just 11 older than I am. Hardly qualifies him to be calling me child in my books but hey what do i know!

What is it with you women? First of all, you tell guys never to ask a woman her age. And then you do a silly thing by indicating how old you are! You walked right into that one :)

Thankfully I am not one of those women who has a thing about their age. Anyone who knows me knows my age, my birthdate even (I looove all those birthday calls, text messages, presents, etc). Its PC who is hung up on the age difference between us.

I don't have a problem revealing my age either. I don't understand women who do. But most people think that I look younger than I am, so maybe that's why I'm cool with it. :-)

BTW, Funke, I really like how you have your comments open up on the saame page. How did you do that?
