How old is old

 I took a cake order recently and the customer asked that it say Happy 45th birthday Dad. I repeated the wording back to her and she laughed and said yeah, he's really old. This of course made me laugh and I had to say to her oh please don't say that, I'm 62. We both got a chuckle out of it.

Anyway, when I made the cake I decided to make the 45 a bit larger than the rest of the writing.

62 is not old compared to me. I told some friends I have achieved old and one of them asked me how she will know when she is old. I said you will know when it hits you. We laughed.

I like it. Hey, at least he'll know they remember how old he is.

Love the cake...and I think when one feels old then, they are old...no thought of changing the way they are living life, in the now.
Exercise...diet...I know, but these are so important.
If you don't have your health, you have nothing.
I'm 72...and I have to push myself...but I have to keep pushing until I'm pushing up daisies. lol
hugs

I can tell you that every 10 years after I turned 40 make me feel older and older and I am feeling every 79 years of life. I would love to be 45. I remember thinking my mother was so old when we moved to KY in 1953 and looking back she was 29 years old... I was 9.. ha ha

Laughing at Sandra's old mom! I think that was a great idea to make the 45 bigger.

One of my doctors was reading a candidates CV the other day and he said 'wow she's old'. She was born in 1977. lol Love that you made the 45 bigger.

I'm 67 but I don't feel old and I hope I never do!

Pam said...

Yes, larger drives the 45th home faster...lol

It's a beautiful cake, and making the 45 bigger makes it more balanced and attractive. I'm 84 and proud of it. Wouldn't go back in time even if I had a choice.

The cake is a beauty and looks delicious.
Every decade I reach, the next one is old. :)

The cake looks great. I'm not crazy about them wanting 45 on the cake but he may have loved it!
