    Re: When I was at \ as your age

    But "When I was your age" is the most common of all, I would say.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    What about "When I was of your age"?
