This Is How Sensitive I Am About My Age

Today I had lunch with Aidan at his school.

First, I must say that the blob they call "yummy spaghetti with tangy meat sauce" is actually spaghetti noodles that have been cooked approximately 36 minutes too long whipped up with Always Save tomato paste and barely cooked, bargain bin, ground head meat they pass off as hamburger. Ew!

I digress. The little girl who sat across from me played 600 Questions with me. I played along. Then she asked me how old I was and I lied through my teeth. I told her I was 29. I'm 9 days from the 2nd anniversary of my 29th birthday actually. I couldn't look her in the eye after that. I lied to a 6 year old about my age. I need help...

The really sad part is that kid still thinks you're ancient. You could have said you were fifty and it would have been the same difference to her.

Just think of age as increased experience! I am always being mistaken for my children's grandmother. That is embarrassing!!!

Ha, ha! I'm 28 and I am sensitive about my age too. It annoys the crap out of me when people say, "you look too young to have kids that old."

Reminds me of "Ask me no questions and I'll tell you no lies." wherever that came from. Oh 31 was easy, it was 32 that sent me to the mental institution.

Oh, please... I'm 44!!! That's getting close to FIFTY! Damn.
Do you know how long I told my boys I was 25, they really began to believe it? It got to be a running joke that every year on my bithday I turned 25. It started getting weird when they were teenagers.
This past year my oldest turned 21 and we made a big joke was that I was still 25! :-)
