Age Guessing

If there is one thing I’m bad at, it’s guessing someone’s age.

Years ago, it seemed that everyone I knew was right around my age. Then I started meeting people in college who were slightly older, lots older, and lots younger. Today I deal with such a wide range of people, I barely know how old I am anymore. And that’s confusing – for instance, did you know that Ryan is really a 62-year-old?

I’m sure that there’s at least one Pinger out there, though, who is keen at guessing ages and could even guess mine (although, admittedly, that’s not difficult to do.) I’d like some advice, as well. I look at faces, eyes, and I say, “You’re 20!” no matter how old someone is. Maybe it’s my technique?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
