It's only time.

I can't determine whether I'm quite old or quite young.

You're older now than you were when you were younger than you ought to be.

I'm not sure I was ever younger than I ought to be. I've spent most of my life being older than I am and now I'm older I feel horribly uncertain and young.

Did you go and have a birthday or something? I think you're quite young, in the scheme of things, but y'know, old enough to be a person and stuff.

Worse than a birthday - a gynaecological crisis. In that sense I'm totally in decline.

Eugh, sorry to hear that. When I first started uni there were posters all over the place depicting Wonder-Woman-esque superheroes clutching specula and intoning "With my speculum, I am strong". Never heard anything more absurd. It takes massive self-bribery, the promise of presents and trips to the seaside, even to persuade myself to be in the same room as a speculum. Horrid poky things.

You're not old Nails, if you were you wouldn't be asking the question because you'd know. It's when everything you are suddenly runs out of warranty, hair colour, tin knees, unlined skin, lady bits etc.

doorbitch say 'carkfult', I'll have to save that one.

I hope life ceases to lurch from one gynaecological crisis to another. I was terribly dehydrated when travelling in India (Rajasthan): I thought I had a UTI, or an STI ... it was only dehydration, but I ended up leaving a bit of fruit at every shrine we passed and feeding a bit of greens to every cow. It took hours to walk up the street!

Alexis, I'll take a speculum wielder over the awkwardness of the pelvic ultrasound That much lube should never lead to something so un-fun.

JahTeh, I think the lady bits are giving their notice - hence the confusion.

Mitzi, ouch. I would sympathetically drink some water but I've had more than enough for the day.
