    Haha! You must be a young person!! 2020 is only 10 years . . . when you get OLD, years go by faster and faster . . . my "baby girl" is 25!!!! For my sake, I hope that 2020 is a LONG WAY AWAY!!!

    Huh? only 10 years? That's a decade! For me, that is long..... But, nah, I'm not that young. I'm no spring chicken, if that's what you mean. What is old anyway -- 60?? Hey, I dated someone 15 years my senior when I was in my 20's, I'm in my 30's now. Some people just age well, with or without botox! Age is nothin' but a numba! I mean just look at Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton, Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, even John Edwards the cheetah Some people are just programmed to look better when they get older, it's like aged wine!
