Really? Really!!! For REALSIES?

I happened to mention the ages of my kids in a class today and a 20ish looking guy student (who I opened the door for after class, because he was on crutches, so don't be thinking the Flys is into any hanky panky) asked "Can I ask how old you are?"

What the hell, I thought. And I told him the truth. "Almost 35."

"WOW" he says, and I almost kick his crutches out from under him before he limps another step and finishes...."I thought you were like, 25 tops."

"My God," I said, "thank you."

Please notice how McDonalds has improved upon minty green St. Patty's Day perfection by adding whipped cream, AND a cherry to their phenom seasonal concoction, the Shamrock Shake.  I'm def picking up one of these babies on the way home to celebrate my youthful appearance. 

When I get home I'm going to go online, and surf around for places to spout my positive opinion of L'Oreal Revitalift. Yeah, TY L'Oreal, I'm your bitch for life. FOR LIFE.


  1. I used to work at McD's in college. We used to mix half shamrock with half chocolate--and you can ask them to do that for you if you're so inclined. I highly recommend it!
    Congrats on looking like a hot young co-ed! I knew you you'd fit in just fine!

  2. @knitwit - Half Chocolate/Half Shamrock you say? And there's my lunch for today.

    Back to the topic at hand, I had the very opposite of that happen to me a few weeks ago. We have a new round of interns here at work. One of them aged me to 40 (10 years). I wanted to bitch-slap her, but I'm a gentleman...

    ...I mentally bitch-slapped her...

    ...and rigged her office space to rain hole-punch-confetti on her...

    ...it's the simple pleasures in life that get you through the day, you know?
