2 Years Younger

One lady I visit each Wednesday had a birthday party today. She turned 97, or so she thought. At the nursing home her family & I were discussing her age and it turns out she's only 95. Whereas most of us worry we're getting old on our birthday, Doris got quite a bit younger! Her older sister, Hazel, was at the party as well. Hazel is 99. Both ladies are in good health. The oldest person in the world, currently, is 114. Who's the oldest person you know?

My mom was 27 for 2 years for basically the same reason. When she turned 26, she thought she was turning 27. Then when she had her *next* birthday, she realized she was only NOW turning 27 :) There, 27 for two years

haha! That's hilarious! I wish I could have a birthday like that! I'm getting too close to that horrible number that starts with a "3"!
