both birthdays passed

Both my goyish and Jewish birthdays passed.

Now I'm officially older. More people give me seats in buses and even rides ahead of line.

There are advantages to getting older and starting to look older, too. I wonder if when in just a few years, when I'm old enough for a discount, will I have to show identification? It took my parents quite a while until people believed that they were old.

It's great to have such genes. You're very lucky. A young pal of mine told me I still had about five more years where I could pass for 26. Since I am in my late 30s, I told her she is my new best friend. ;) Congrats on both of your birthdays and on not looking your age. :)

Thanks. I once read a magazine article that said that the trick to looking young is having parents who look young.
