Well, of course. I was being dishonest to the extent that I knew
perfectly well that "cool" was the word you had in mind, but I really
don't see anything age-specific about it. It's been in use for decades
- in fact, if anything, I think of it as *old* slang: when you said
you were giving away your age, it never occurred to me that you really
meant you were giving away your *youth*.
