The Age Game

So yesterday I was told twice-- that's right twice-- that I look younger than I am.

The first was a girl from my ASL class. She mentioned that she was eighteen and when me and the other girl in our small group called her young, she said we weren't much older. When we asked her how old she thought we were she said I looked twenty-two.

The second was a co-worker who, when I mentioned something about my mission in Florida, gave me a funny look. "You're not old enough to have already been on a mission," she said. Again, when asked how old I looked, she said twenty-one or twenty-two.

The amazing part in all this? I've surpassed the age when being told I look younger is actually a compliment!

Oh the discoveries!
