What things keep you young

I stay out of the sun. I look like years younger than a lot of women my age.

I like talking to my kid about sex, drugs and music. I have gone to his high school parties, and they remind me of mine. Right down to Iron Maiden screaming in the background. Biggest difference tho, is no one had a lighter. What kind of 16 year olds dont' have lighters?

My kid teaches me all the silly slang that they use at school. My kid tells me everything. I am allowed to feel like a teenager because I am so included in one's life.

I keep my hair long and wear blue jeans. I feel young.

What about you guys, what do you do?

I have my hair long, and I love comfy clothes,

I learned how to waterski this summer, and love to play with the kids and get messy

I had my son know all the words to Motley Crue's shout at the devil, at age 3, and I keep the lines of communication open.

I smile a lot

I still get ID's at the beer store. (I have a pic or 2 of myself and the kids and mr. manda in the pix thread BTW)

I keep my hair long too. Well, maybe "keep" is a bit of stretch. Really it's just a matter of not getting it cut. I do try to brush it sometimes though.

I don't know that anything keeps me young though. I have two teeth left, arthritis, and an attitude problem.

Ah, there it is. My attitude problem keeps me young. I've never lost the ability to get pissed off at injustice, question people who wear suits, allows me to do things with a smoke hanging out of my mouth that most my age age can't manage at all, live on coffee and cheeseburgers for indefinite periods, spend as much on beer as most people spend on cars, back down one way streets (with a beer between my legs and smoke in my mouth) instead of going around the block.

Ah, there it really is...my inherent self-destructiveness keeps me young. That and the fact that I'm a leprechaun.

I gave it to an American with yellow shoes. Now there's a really vague reference.

An American?! Have you lost you're bloody mind? They might hand it over to Bush, never trust yellow shoes!

Gold is only gold, though. You can't eat it or build a house with it. People who chase rainbows never stop to look at them. Shoes that are yellow got that colour somehow.

...wow....you have gone to high school parties....you must really look young to do that.

.....anyways I keep looking young by running at the gym and working out a few times a week. An few hours of sweat a week will keep you looking young.....

It also helps that I got an insanely high metabolism......I'm 5"11 and only 165 although I eat like I am 18......but it's nice not to have a belly when your in your late 30's

Are you kidding us? You are 40 and have only 2 teeth left? And arthritis? Tell us the truth, now. Are you exaggerating?

Yes I am exaggerating...I'm actually 41. Other than that...yup, the truth. Kinda cool, because my last hemophilia test (oh yeah, got that too) they took some extra blood for the geneticist.

No worries though...I have some teeth made out of acrylic, and I treat the arthritis with beer and herbs because the the doctor's pills make me piss blood. In the end, I can operate just like the average man in a grey flannel suit. I choose not to though. Go figure.

Kind of. They are easier to brush and whatever is in that pill I toss into the glass takes care of the rest. I still have to clean my mouth out though, which basically requires using a toothbrush to clean my gums.

so do you have the kind of fake teeth that you take out and leave in a glass overnight? Or do people still use those?

I don't have to resort to that...yet. But the hairs that have changed on my head are really neat! they have absolutely no colour, and are really shiny...I think I'll let it all turn so people think that I'm albino, except for the blue eyes and freckles.....but I am really pale!

Unfortunately for me that only works if my daughter isn't around. If I act silly around her and her friends she promptly reminds me that I am a parent and shouldn't act that way.

It was nice when she was little and we could both skip together down the road........those were the days......

My kids still let me pull that one off....and they dance around the living room with me and the vaccuum.....

You bet I do. Better than that...I have the kind of teeth I can take out and put in somebody's beer at the bar.

You know what would be even funnier? If you had an extra set and still did that. Then when they look accusingly at you give 'em a big old toothy grin. Nothing worse then not knowing who's teeth are in your glass.......
