It’s my birthday and I’ll DE-age if I want to!

Birthday CakeToday is my birthday and it’s now official.  I’m DE-aging.  Last year I wrote the following JoJoism:

JoJoism#17 “Age is just a number. So after 50, I’m going to begin counting backwards. I wonder how long it’ll take me to pass my kids on the way down?” JoJoisms: Revealing Life’s Truths…as I think of ’em!

Last year I was 50 so this year I’m claiming 49.

Anyone want to join me as I age backwards?  I pass on the time warp baton to you.  How old will you be on your next birthday?

By the way, the picture is from a few years ago. I can’t eat cake anymore. My dh had this made for me as I love purple and collect purses.  Here’s how you make it:

Cut the bottom third or so off two round cakes and join them together with frosting.  Stand cakes up on a plate.  Add frosting with purple food coloring and coconut.  Add flower and outline bottom of cake with grape Red Vines.  Poke two more grape Red Vines into the top of the cake for handles.

    Interesting concept, but my body rush-ages me instead of de-ages me. If I could choose an age. . . hmmmm. . . let’s see. I guess I’d want to be 40 again. Between 39 and 40 is when I came alive, so to speak. But then there were a lot of hairy things in front of that age. So I guess I’ll stay right where I am. 😉 Happy Birthday!

    Thanks, Carla. My body does the same thing. I often feel like I’m 80, but inside I still feel like a goofy child. Just claiming younger numbers as a way to trick my brain into thinking I still feel young even though my body has a mind of its own. LOL

    Happy Birthday! What a beautiful cake that is! looks so delicious! I hope you aren’t forever banned from eating cake… at least should be able to have a piece now and then, I hope.

    Thanks, Joan. I think I may be able to have a small bite now and again at some point, but I have reactive hypoglycemia so I don’t think much cake, sugar or carbs are in my diet from now on. That’s okay. I feel better without them.
