Happy Birthday to Me?

I'm going to turn 42 this year which, if you've never been that age before, sounds terribly old. Do I have to start adding young to my age whenever I say how old I am?: "As in, I am 43 years young." 
Should I take a tip from Molly Shannon playing Sally O'Mailley and regularly inform people that, "I like to kick and stretch" while demonstrating my spryness? 
Perhaps I'm overreacting, as when I did was about 30 and first began to experience what I called the "Ma'amity-ville Horror." That's when every young store clerk or deliveryman or rental car worker calls you ma'am. 
Look for a midlife crisis posthaste. I might get a tattoo or run off with an Italian.
