How Old Are You?

Daily Prompt -Plead the Fifth What question do you hate to be asked? Why?


When someone is rude enough to ask my age I have no compunction about lying.  I simply respond by adding 10 years to my actual age and wait for their look of shock and the inevitable, “Wow! You look terrific!”

Works every time.

  2. I tried that once but it backfired.The rude enquirer believed me when I said 51 but added he ddn’t think I was 50 yet. In fact I was 46 when that happened. But I still reply 46 even though I’m now 72!


  3. Ha!! I love that idea!!!
