Thirty Something

I’m not sure how we got on this discussion

Me: I can’t believe I’m going to be thirty-something soon. Not just thirty but thirty-something.
Him: Yeah :lmao:
Me: Those people are old, that can’t be me :annoyed:
Him: You’ve been thirty-something for a year now though.
Me: No I haven’t. Thirty isn’t thirty-something. Thirty is thirty-nothing.
Him: Once you turn thirty you are thirty and one day or two or 43 days, so that’s something.
Me: Nobody counts by days, nobody says “I’m 37 and 67 days.”
Him: It doesn’t matter, that’s what it is.
Me: :rolleyes:

I still don’t buy it, what about you?

    Damn, your gonna be old! But if it makes you feel any better, I’ve been thirty-something for five years now. Or is it six years?

    Nope, you didn’t turn thirtysomething until today. (I turn 30 in June, so I totally get your logic) Totally.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Have lotsa cake! And sweets and treats!!!

    Happy Birthday! I agree, you’re now a thirty something. I guess either way you’re in your early thirties.

    When people ask how old I am, I say “I’m 33. Actually, I’m 33 and a half. I’ll be 34 in June.” You know, like a kid would. 😀

    Oooh! Happy Birthday!

    Remember that TV show, Thirty-Something? One of the ladies who was on it, Polly Draper, is the mother of Nat & Alex Wolff, who are ‘The Naked Brothers Band’ (which, I realize, you probably know nothing about – not having teens or preteens hanging around you…). Anyway, they have a show on Nickelodeon & they are not half-bad, musically – especially for their age. Al & I went to see them in concert & Polly Draper was there, sitting up in a high balcony, watching her sons perform & taking pics of them. Us other moms of the teens & preteens there were talking about how we used to watch 30-something & how cool it must be for her to have her kids be such teen idols.

    Me & the other moms reminiscing about 30-something & talking about our teenagers. Now, that’s old!

    You’re not old. I AM OLD. I’ll be celebrating the seventh anniversary of my 30th birthday in April.

    Yep, once you’re 30, you immediately become 30-something.

    Of course I probably say that because I’m jealous of being 30-something since I’m WELL into being 40-something.

    Robin, as much as I love you, it’s posts like these that make me think if you and manly man ever did run away to Canada you’d end up going crazy and killing us both. (But, I mean, if you’re okay with that so am I…)

    I was never 30 something. I was always 31 or 36 or 30. Last year I turned 3010. This year I will be 3011.

    I was born in ’68, and since 40 is the new 30, by my math, I’m about 29.
