What About My Age?

     It's my brother's birthday today and he's 73.

     I'm also 73.

     It's not my birthday today.

      It wasn't my birthday yesterday and it won't be my birthday tomorrow.

       We both have the same Mom.

     What's going on here?






   
Both photos about 3 years ago.

Handsome lookin' dudes!

    1. There are lots of close birthdays but under a year is a little freaky.

    1. I can be easily fooled as I'm a careless reasoner.

  3. I was going to say different Dads, but that would not explain the dilemma. One of you was adopted?

    1. Now we had the same Mom. Not adopted.

  4. Two opportunities, you both are born in the same year, one in January, the other in December, or one of you is adopted or even both of you.

    1. Your right on the first guess. We were born less than a year apart.

    1. So you know what's going on here. We are the same age for two weeks. I would think in many of these close births prematurity plays a big part.

  9. Love this post! You're both very handsome!! Is there an explanation forth-coming??

  10. Hmmm...I wonder if you have less than a year apart. My late brother and I were born 11 months, and for one month out of the year we were the same age!

    1. You're exactly right. We are the same age for two weeks every year.

  11. Are you Irish twins (less than a year apart)? Happy birthday to your brother, and if your birthday is soon, a happy one to you, too! :-)

    1. Yes, we are Irish twins. I'd never heard that expression before. I'll remember it.

  12. Well, there's nine months to make a baby and 12 months to make a year. I think I got this one figured out. Sort of. :-)

    1. You have it exactly. My brother was born before my first birthday.

  15. Well first, belated happy birthday to your brother. I have a friends whose daughters were born in January and December of the same year but I figure this is more along the lines of what my sister and I would say about our ages.. four years apart except for 12 days of the year when we're just three years apart.
