Better Than Expected

Ganked from frankwu

This coming August 27, the day I fly to Japan for Worldcon, I will turn 42 years old by the calendar. According to this Real Age Calculator, my "Real Age" is 36 1/2 years old; it predicts that statistically, I'll live until about 80 years old. The bad things (diabetes, overweight) are more than offset by the good ones (never smoke or drink, exercise regularly, extremely low cholesterol, and others, including, interestingly enough, having good friends).

I labeled this "Better Than Expected," but in fact I found myself thinking just recently, "I don't feel like I'm 42 years old. I feel younger than that." Despite having had some real problems keeping my blood sugar in the green zone these past ten days or so, and despite hobbling around on this injured left foot, I'm still feeling pretty good overall.
