Aging Gracefully


Yes, it seems to be happening every year...

"um.. "
"would you like to see my ID?"
"yeah, please?"
"sure... here ya go"
"oh! I never would have guessed... wow..."

Hm... one might take this as a compliment: "you don't LOOK as old as you are." Yet, one might take it as an insult: "you don't look as OLD as you are."

I really wanted to say, "dude, are you saying I'm old?"

Really, what's next? "Wow, you look GREAT for your age!" Come on people, I'm not THAT old! *sigh* How is it possible that half the time I feel like some awkward teenager doing my best to convince everyone that I can handle the responsibilities of the adult world, yet, I'm about to turn 33?

Don't feel bad, since having the kids they don't even bother to check my ID anymore. It's as if they're saying, "Yeah lady, we know you're old don't even bother with the ID". *sigh*

That's not fun. Any time a compliment comes with a qualifier... not really a compliment.

But you DO look good. Period. :)
