Friday at the bank cashing a check…
Very Young Male Teller: I’ll need your ID for this..
Me: No problem. (digs in 50 pound purse looking for the drivers license that has not been asked for in 15 years. Find it among the goldfish crackers and wipes. Take it out, blow on it and wipe it off. Comfort child who is now screaming for a pink lollipop.)
Teller: (Looking quite seriously at my ID) WOW – you look like really young in this picture. Like you are 23 or something.
Me: Oh, thank you. It is a good one.
Teller: Yeah, wow it must have been taken a really long time ago.
Me: Well, it does expire this year – so yeah I guess it was taken almost four years ago.
Teller: Wow – the difference is incredible. You were really hot.
Me: Um, thanks? I think? Can I have a lollipop please?
Note to women in their mid-thirties – your face evidently goes to shit at 40, so enjoy the few good years you have left.
For an actual compliment – sweet Alison at Mama Wants This has me at her place today for her Guest Star series.
Come visit and tell me how great my skin looks “for my age.” Or just come visit and leave a sweet comment and meet Alison.
