Have you ever hung out with a younger crowd and then realize that you're an old fart? I felt like that today around these kids who were born in 1987.

87! They could be in the Harry Potter movies being that young.

I feel like I should lie and tell people I'm 21, but if there are two things I hate lying about the most, it's age and height, even though I hate both. I stopped counting when I turned 21, so now I barely know how old I am. When people ask me my age, I'd actually have to think about it before telling them, and even then, I find it hard to spit out the truth. I hate discussions about age. Why can't we all just be ageless?

Whenever people ask me my age, I feel like beating them with bananas.

You're still a youngin! I'm 24 and one of my best friends is just 20 though and she really makes me feel like an old woman sometimes. Other times I'm grateful that I've moved past the young and wild stage that she's in.

Hehe. Looking young when your older is a good thing. I feel somewhat disappointed when someone doesn't card me at a place (it doesn't happen too often, I almost always get carded - except when it's a super Asian place and they just forget all the time, or it's a laid back place where they just don't care). At least you don't look older than you are... There's this chick who's Mike's friend who apparently is born the exact same day he is. It really sad because I ALMOST always (sometimes I remember, but rather rarely) forget that she's our age (she looks like she's in her 30's). I've only met her a couple of times so when I saw her again recently, I looked at her all confused because this time I remembered she was supposed to be our age, but I forgot she looked so old!!!! :(

Anyway, my point is, feel blessed for looking young. Even if you don't like it now, you'll love it later, when the rest of us look ancient and you still look young. :)
