I was checking out at the grocery store this afternoon and the checkout lady looked up at me and said 'Oh, are you out on your own now?' with a little knowing smile. I was really confused and quickly looked over what I was getting-lots of desserts, yes... but nothing that would warrant a comment like that. Then I realized she thought I was a teenager. But I didn't know what to say back-it was so random, and not invited at all. So she kept ringing me up, and I was kind of quiet. And then she started to ask about my mom and dad. And that's when I realized she thought she knew me. So I had to stop her and tell her I didn't know her, and then she got all embarrassed (which I knew would happen and which is why I did NOT want to say anything). She kept apologizing and then went on to say she had babysat for 'me' (she couldn't really grasp I wasn't this person she thought I was) since I was 'this high'. I was walking away by this point. I don't know which I'm more disturbed by-that there is someone out there that looks so much like me, or that she thought I was 16. When I told her I was 28, she was stunned. Mouth opened stunned. So much for trying to look older... I think that age thread jinxed me.
