Today is my wife's and grandson's Birthday.

she says that she is 29 years old, but we have a 28 yo son. So how can my wife be only 29 years old?

Your son may be lying about his age.

Maybe he travels faster than the speed of light. There are a number of helpful threads on said subject.

Well, some people start counting backwards. So eventually you'll be 18

My grandmother lied about her age right up to the day she learned the truth would save her a bunch of money on taxes. She aged fairly quickly that day. Must have been going backwards at > the speed of light.
Happy birthday to both of them.
personally, I am right up front about my age. You should see the look of shock on people's faces when the learn I have actually lived that long the way I live!

We have been married 29 years and she's only 46, do the math. Also a few months back I went to my 30 year class reunion. That was a weird experience, all the guys were bald and all the girls were gray headed. I felt like I was at a senior citizens meeting. I have a full head of hair and no gray. I guess I eat better or something.
