Just Another Number

Mirror, mirror on the wall,

How the hell old do you think I am?!?

Maybe it’s the upcoming arrival of my birthday that’s setting me off, but my brain and ego can’t even begin to wrap themselves around this enigma.

What kind of person goes to the liquor store for Bailey’s and fails to get carded by an 80 year old cashier, then later that same day goes to Target…

and gets carded by a teenage punk for buying canned air?

Why, yours truly, of course!

Evidently, I look old enough to buy alcohol without proper adult supervision…

But not quite old enough to know that getting high off a can of compressed air is just wrong.

Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

I can’t be sure.

While I’m not exactly certain where I stand at the moment, perhaps the picture below will help put things in perspective.

~Have a great weekend, and Happy Earth Day! ~

Keeping myself entertained while the kids are at school...

  1. This is my life!! I’m 22, but often times mistaken as a 16 year old! As annoying as it is now, I’m sure it will be AMAZING by the time I’m about 45-50 years old! Haha!!


  2. Hey, my 15yo son has just overtaken me height wise! I’m cool with that. I’ve hit 50 but some days feel 20! Happy birthday to you for whenever it is. 🙂 Enjoy it all.


  3. I look on the bright side since I’m no longer carded when I enter a casino and think of all the hassle I’m saving. I work in a big box store and yet continue to be amazed at all of the things that prompt the cashier to ID the customer when they’re rung up. You must have got a newbie who wants to make damn sure he isn’t selling canned air to an undercover underage cop!


    • Well, that piqued my curiousity. I wonder what other offbeat items will get a person carded. I think I’ll make it my mission to track down every possible item worthy of carding. Every single time I end up at a big box store. 😛
