Some actually asked me: "Are you sure you're 19?" when I was buying cigarettes (I've quited since then). I was like...I know how old I am.

Oh man - people ask the strangest questions don't they? 8)

    I get that too, but I'm 19. It's sometimes sad when I went to order flower for prom with a bunch of friends and my best friend and her boyfriend kissed (a quick peck) and the flourist told them "not in front of the kids". Immeditately turned to my shorter friend, but we quickly realized that the flourist was talking about me. She said she thought I was 12...I was a senior in high school and older than all my friends.
    I used to get that... not so much anymore except for the "there's no way you are old enough to be a grandma!" My daughter who is 33 still gets mistaken for a teenager and when we are out together people think her children are mine! The day she graduated from college, the hostess at a local restaurant asked her is she wanted the kid's menu!!  :D

    I get that just about every time I go into a restaurant with my parents! Do I want the kid's menu... LOL sometimes I take it though, but just because I have a small appetite.. :P

    My husband turned 85 on October 31. He loves his Kindle,in fact, I had to buy him one only a week after mine arrived since he wanted to share mine. Ha..as if!

    I am 23 - sadly though most people think I am much younger (I've been asked if I'm 16, 14, even 12....)  ;)
    I guess it's probably because I don't wear makeup.
    HOWEVER I will love that when I am in my 40's!!
    Pah, everyone thinks I'm upward up 25. Although I've been told that that's due more to personality than looks. And I'm fairly tall.

    It happened again! I was at Sams and I was reaching for a sample...Then the lady asked me if my parents said I could have something. I was about to say something, but my mom showed up right next to me as she zeroed in on the chocolate cheesecake.

     ???  I am 60 for another couple of months, but really don't feel like it.  My students in primary grades keep me young and tuned in to what's happening. ???

    People tell me I look really young. And my height doesn't help (I'm 5'0"). Oh well.

    I'll be 63 in January and my husband is 85. Yes, he robbed the cradle about 33 years ago!

    Birthdays are good.   So much superior to the alternative.

    Both my kids were born in the summer, and when you have kids, the year revolves around the school calendar.  So when they got out of school in June, I would just up their ages.  Since my birthday is in November, I up my age when school starts in September.  Not only have I confused myself now, but both my daughters have trouble remembering how old they are.
