how old are you?

over the weekend, i went to a trade show (for work) with my friend jamie. we paid for the tickets and walked over to the entrance of the show, where a lady was taking tickets & handing out fliers for a giveaway of some kind.

"may i have your tickets?" (we hand them over)

she hands us our fliers...then abruptly stops me and asks "are you over 18?"


i was speechless so jamie answered for me "yes she's 28."

the lady answers "oh okay, because you have to be over 18 to win the prize."

well, i haven't been mistaken as an 18 year old in quite some time. so apparently i'm aging quite well :)

that evening my mom said that sometimes i look a lot younger when i don't have makeup on. i pointed out that i was wearing makeup.

i'll enjoy this while it lasts! good thing my hubby wasn't there...he looks even younger than me!!

good stuff coming this week...stay tuned.

I'm turning 30 in December and I typically get about 25. There's nothing wrong with looking younger than you are. (And have you every noticed the people who really get your age wrong are much older?)

i'm 31 and people always think i'm very young. just before i turned 30 someone in mexico actually asked if i was 13!

This post made me laugh! I've had the same mistake happen to me (once I was carded for a PG-13 movie!). My mom told me to enjoy it while I can, so that's what I try to do...
