Two Questions

Yesterday June got 200 comments on a post when she asked her readers to tell her their age.  TWO HUNDRED.  Y’all.

Now, my mama always told me that a lady never reveals her age or her dress size, so it never occurred to me to ask such a personal question here on ye olde blawg.  But if June can do it, I can do it, so here goes. 

How old are you? Inquiring minds wanna know. 

I’d also love to know what state or country you live in. Ready, set, GO!

Don’t let me down, y’all.

And now that you’re here, let me tell you a funny story. 


A few weeks ago, I arrived at the Philadelphia airport after one one of my trips, I can’t even remember which one, how sad is that?  I took the shuttle to my car, and when I opened my door, I noticed a folded Post It Note on my seat.  I didn’t think much about it, climbed in, and drove off.

On the way home I called my husband and asked if he needed me to pick up any groceries.  Of course he did, so I stopped at the Acme and hopped out to get a few things.  I was wearing a black dress and a little green sweater wrap and silver sandals.  I remember thinking that I’m never this well dressed at the grocery store.  I admit it, I was feeling cute.

I walked up and down every aisle, smiling at everyone I passed.  My trip had been fun, my time away relaxing.  I was in a good mood, shiny happy people and all that.

Then I wandered into the wine store that is next door.  I was standing in the checkout line when a man behind me said, “Excuse me.”

I turned and smiled.

“You.  Um.  You have something on the back of your dress.”

I turned around and there it was — that bright yellow Post It Note from the seat of my car, stuck to my hiney.

  1. I am 26, but in denial, so I celebrate turning 23 every year. I wonder how long I can get away with that??? I live in Chattanooga, TN!

  2. I’m like a woman when it comes to my age..I guess because I remember how horrified my own mom was when she turned 30 lol

    I am older than 30 but less than 40! LMAO

    [email protected] post it note story!! too cute..thanks for sharing

    I’m from South Carolina

    Here’s my part towards your 200!!

  3. I’ll be 38 for a few more weeks. I live in Virginia. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to look at another post-it note with a straight face!

  4. Funny story! And thank you again for all your help the other day!!! YOU ARE AWESOME! I’m 40 and live in Texas

  5. I am 44 and I live in North Carolina and I’ve now got 250 ding-dang comments. For some reason people like to tell their age.

    And I saw what you wrote, Darla! See if YOU ever get any of my free M&Ms!!

    And dcr, you understand it’s a Post-it and not a posterior-it, right?

  6. I’m 35 and from the great state of West Virginia.

    (For some reason, I feel like the contestants at the beginning of Miss USA where they say “I’m Julie such and such, 35 from West Virginia… as the music plays softly in the background)

    Your post-it note story reminded me of the time I was standing in the check-out line at the grocery store and a nursing liner fell out of my pants leg. I dunno. Things like that always seem to happen to me. I just shake my head and go on.

    Oh, and I so hope you get your 200 comments.

    Age and Location. Who knew it would be such a hit? Maybe I’ll try that next week. Perhaps all 8 of my readers will comment that day! =)

  7. I’ll be 33 in a few short weeks, but what makes me feel old…ish is the fact the my son will be a teenager next birthday. I live in good ol’ historic PA, in a farmhouse 2 centuries old, and I do not support the Eagles signing Michael Vick (if you live in PA, it feels obligatory to reveal where you fall on that issue today).

  8. I’m 29 and in Orange County CA! That’s right I’m a real Orange County Housewife 🙂
    The question is “Did the post-it say anything?” Because it would be even funnier if it ‘pick up tampons’ or ‘easy mac’ or ‘meeting at 4pm’ or… geeze… I could go on and on and it isn’t even that funny!

  9. I guess I’m the oldster in your group at 63 but young at heart as I love your blog. I live in Georgia.

  10. Never understood why people don’t want to give their age. Maybe I’ll change my tune when I start to feel old. Until then, I’m happy to share… 36 and we just moved to South Carolina.

  11. I will be 31, one week from today.
    We are from California. My husband is in the Navy, so for 3.75 more months we live in Sicily. In December we’ll head stateside and live near Wash, DC.

  12. I am 24 and from SC! I found your website through June and have just started reading it. I like your post it story, funny!

  13. Love your blog! You make me laugh. You make me shake my head in wonder. And you are always entertaining and informative. Thanks for putting yourself into your writing.

    Oh, and I am 35 and I live in a suburb of Little Rock, Arkansas.

  14. Hey Jo-Lynne! I’m looking forward to a huge surprise party for my 40th next year. Since I hate even numbers and it’ll be the kick-off to an even generation for me, I better have the best party evah!

    As far as where I live… I’m about 30 minutes from either downtown Salt Lake City or Park City, UT right at the base of the mountains :).

    Thanks for asking!!!

We eat our dinner we with me dreading the bill coming because I know that I will have to walk out the crowded restaurant with my semi naked booty hanging out of my jeans. *hangs head* I too this day have never set foot in that restaurant again lol..but hey he married me despite the incident…or was it because of it. I shall never know.
