I lie

February 2, 2009

. . .about my age. More than a few times. I know nobody is trying to hear somebody young talk about being discriminated against for their age but it does happen. So if somebody thinks I'm 27 I just play along, and laugh at jokes I don't get as an almost 80s baby;). I'm an old soul but I am in no rush to age, since it will happen anyway. I've gotten better at not coming off as the rookie (I hope) after getting shut down one summer for not knowing the Transformers characters when Beyonce came out in the robocop gold suit, and being quizzed for the next year on all things 80s, lol. Yes, I know who He-Man is. I know Im a weirdo to actually add years on and now the spooky part is Im actually getting older, and my bday is Sunday. Yay! Guess, I may not lie about my age since I'll fit in more, but we'll see . . .

  1. Oh, happy birthday, young un!
    From a fellow writer who, too, acted way beyond her years to get people to f-o-c-u-s. Of course, the baby face always gave me away... but I tried.
