Apparently it is all downhill after 40, based on our "age" answers all around.

No mean jokes is a good idea. I should add that to my list.

I do like that rule about no mean jokes. If it would hurt your feelings or make you feel bad about yourself, why would you say it to someone else?

#3 Yes, there should be a channel like that!

I chose to be 35 because that was right before I got really sick with a mystery illness. I figure 35 was A-OK.

Ah. Republican Motherhood. Interesting study. *nods*

And, #16...as the Aunt of two teachers, and perhaps the mother of one, I'd snatch anyone bald who asked me that question, but in a nice way... =o)
