How old am I?

This time of year, I think I must have an allergy to a particular pollen, as the skin of my face and neck gets very itchy and lumpy. I was trying to point out to Hannah that I've now got bags under my eyes with really prominent creases so I look like a tortoise. "Don't worry, you always look like that" my daughter reassures me!

So I turn to Paul who sees people of all ages at his clinic and is usually quite a good judge of age. "How old do you think I look?" He replies "Early 50's" (knowing I am 51 and this will annoy me) then says "No you do look a bit younger possibly 45"

Finally I try asking Noah. He says I look like the old lady in the Madagascar movie. When I say how old? he says "Dead old" I ask what he means and he says "SO old, you die." Silly question I guess!
