I know I'm short. I know I look younger than my age. People must not realize I'm fully aware of these things, because I am constantly - and I mean everyday of my life, ahhhh - being told I look like a kid. A few examples from this past week or so...
- "When I first saw you, I thought, man, that's a big 2nd-grader."
- "I thought you were a teenager at first!"
- "Are you home from college or are you still in high school?"
- "I thought you were eleven."
- "I'm taller than you!"
And yes, I know looking young is going to be a really good thing in another 10-20 years. I'm fully aware of that too. So thank you, world, for making me even more aware of things I'm already aware of. I appreciate it. Let's hope Santa brings me some aging cream and growth supplements for Christmas.
Okay. End of rant. (And that last statement was totally a joke, by the way...I think)
On a much brighter note, I've also had several people tell me the past week or so that I look happier and that I'm much more fun to be around. Sometimes I wonder if I really did seem that depressed before. Ah, well. All is good for now - you know, other than people mistaking me for an elementary school student. :)
