I'm not very good at acting my age , most of the time I feel like I'm still in high school and should be playing soccer or diving after school. I still play soccer after work, but I don't still dive (my body is definitely not still 16). Coming up on my 30th birthday and having it pass just like that, I've noticed a few things lately that have reminded me that I'm not 16.
When I was in Utah, I was driving behind a school bus full of presumably high schoolers and at a stop light two girls in the back row waved at me, so I smiled and waved back. Next thing I know, I had 4 rows of HS girls pointing and laughing at me. I couldn't figure out what was so funny about me, but then I remembered that Lindsey and I used to do that kind of stuff in Jr. High and High School and I can't tell you why we did it either. For some reason, we thought that all older people should be made fun of. Now I'm that older person.
Another "I'm 30" moment, was when I was walking my dad's dog and his little neighbor boy saw me and said to his grandpa "Grandpa, look, that lady is walking Lola." Maybe kids aren't great judges of age, but we all know that kids don't lie, and that kid just called me a lady!
Hip hip hooray for only getting older from here.
