Today that is exactly what I was doing - I had made a stupid mistake and was telling myself how stupid it was - when I thought (not out loud) that maybe I shouldn't have known better - I'm not old enough where the mistake's obvious perils are so obvious.
And then later in the day when someone asked for the year of my birth (it's 1982) - she responded with "Oh you're so young."
But am I?!?
I'm nearly 30.
On the sliding scale to 50, I'm actually closer to being 50!
I literally have one foot in the grave already. How can I be young?
But then again - am I still able to hide being my age in certain areas? And if so what are the limits?
I feel like I'm too young to be smart with my money in terms of investing - but I'm too old to be stupid with my money in terms of pointless purchases.
So where's the line?
I give up. I'm going for some frozen yogurt.
