What's a good (polite and/or humorous) response when asked your age and you don't want to reveal it?


I think it's a good question/topic -- What's a good (polite and/or humorous) response when asked your age and you don't want to reveal it?

The best is not being asked, but...

I will not write about SEO, but about love, food, UFO, sport, psychology, paranormal and everything else I like.

 This is a common question, but it's not very good accepted in some places, from some people. There are different ages, in fact: passport age (ID card age; calendar age), biological age, psychological age. Most of the people ask (and know) only the first one.
 OK, strictly ontopic: if you are asked your age in a context in which a/ you cannot respond offensively/rudely, b/ cannot just keep silent and c/ you should not respond honestly, there are many polite, humorous, good ways to respond to this question without causing offense and maintaining your privacy.
 Here are some ideas:

- "How much will you donate to my favourite charity, if I tell you?"

- "It’s over 100 already. I'm immortal."

- "I'm old, but... what we lose in form we gain in wisdom."

- "Look, even my closest friends don't ask me how old am I."

- "I’m so old that I've forgotten."

- "Well, old enough to vote."

- "I'm just a little bit older than my teeth."

- "Plenty-something..."

- (How old are you?) "I'm not old at all."
