This was a good one. Met a person today in the course of business and he made some comment to the other people about, “Folks not that far out of their teen years” about me.
I said, “Dude, how old do you think I am?”
“I don’t know, 27?”
“No, try 42.”
Absolute incredulousness. I had to pull out my license; turns out he was 35 and I was his senior by over seven years.
In my younger years, I hated looking so young. Now that I am older I like it much better. When people figure out how much younger you look than your actual chrono age, they really kind of hate you a bit (and I am more than fine with that).
