How old are you?

To my friends who are no longer allowed in "singles wards":

So I was in the stall at church and there were these two girls talking about age and how old was old and such.

"So at what age do you think you will feel old if you're not married?" Asked one of the girls and before the other girl could answer she continued. "I always thought that if I reached 26 and I wasn't married that I'd feel really old (yes she did make the emphasis). It means that you are no longer in your early 20's but now in your late 20's. I just dread being 26."

"Yeah, I'm a little worried about turning 25—I'm not excited about that, but at least I have a few years before I have to worry about that."

I'm sure they said more but I was stuck thinking...I am 5 years (and closer to 32 by the day) older than the girl's dreaded "old" age. I waited until the girls left the bathroom and then laughed to myself and wanted to tell those girls—married—not married you are going to get older and if you are dreading it—it's gonna be rough!
