I was in a sales meeting the other day with a gentleman I've known for the past couple of years, and we were talking about insurance and investments.  He came right out and asked me how old I was and begrudgingly, I told him "the truth," something I rarely do. He responded saying, "You don't look anywhere close to that!"
