Demoted again!

I just took this test, which says I'm 30:





You Are 30 Years Old



30


Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

(Via Right On the Left Coast, who's an overstated 28.)

Sigh.

You'd think that at age 50 I'd have earned the right to have a midlife crisis, but no!

Setbacks like this are utterly unnerving, but serve as another reminder that going through life is (as a well-connected friend said):

like trying to climb to the top of a greasy pole. The closer you get to the top, the greasier it gets!
Yes, he really said that.

MORE: I can't help noticing that certain bloggers want to rub it in (at least in the comments below) by claiming that according to the test they're younger than I am!

Well, I'll have them know that if Tom Cruise can have a midlife crisis, so can I! (Crisis tip via Donald Sensing.)

It would appear that I'm 25. Take that Scheie, you old fart!

I was only 30, too. Hmmm.... I thought I'd be older. I'm actually 50. And I think there should be a special rating on my post and comments: "XXXX -- Nobody under Arnold Harris's age should be allowed to read this!"

Arnold Harris of Mount Horeb, WI, is a venerable 71. What a man! The Grand Old Man on The Mountain. He reminds me of Mr. Bricker.

You can have my mid-life crisis; I'm not using it. There were only two questions on that entire quiz for which I could even find an applicable answer.
