You are not a number

I teach English to adults who are learning it as a second language. 

In some cultures it’s normal, even considered friendly, to ask a person’s age. I usually prefer not to talk about it, though. As a student of Christian Science, I take to heart something Mary Baker Eddy said in Science and Health: “Never record ages. Chronological data are no part of the vast forever. Time-tables of birth and death are so many conspiracies against manhood and womanhood” (p. 246).
