a woman is as old as she admits

a woman is as old as she admits

A woman may not share her true age. A: "But she told me she was 45." B: "There's no way. A woman is as old as she admits, you know." Whenever I asked my granddad how old he and Granny were, he would always wink and, "A man is as old as he feels, but a woman is as old as she admits!"
