As far back as I can remember my Mother always made herself several years younger if anyone asked.
When I was 8 she always told people I was 6.
She thinks I'm crazy for saying I'm 29 when I could pass for so much younger.
Anyway , we were talking and I was telling her about a Co worker of mine. I mentioned the Co workers age and said u both are the same age.
Whenever I mention her age in casual conversation it's around her and my dad.
She called me and was angry that I mention her age
Am I missing something?
It's not like I'm broadcasting it to the world.
My dad already knows your age.

No, never. In fact, they feel proud that they are still very healthy and especially my mom brags that she still looks very young even after that old age.
A lot of girls and some guys too have this problem. They are suffering from gerascophobia. People should realise the fact that the age is not direct representation of beauty or ingenuity.
"Am I missing something?"
-Yes, be 'honest' but don't be 'too honest'. If she doesn't like it, don't say it. I mean you'd still stay happy without mentioning this but by doing this, you'd keep her happy too. Such people don't even like to admit one's age to their own shadow.
Good luck :)1
