I'm getting old....
So yesterday I bought my first beer.....ever. No, no...I haven't decided to take up drinking or anything like that....I bought it for a lawn fertilizng/food concoction that my cousin uses and her lawn looks amazing, so I thought I'd give it a whirl.
I was secretly sort of excited to be asked for my ID as this is an experience that I've never had before. So there I am at the check out....ready and waiting and all I get is "would you like your drinks with you or in the bag". WHAT! You mean, I don't even look remotely close to age 28 (or whatever age it is that if you look younger than they ask for ID). Okay, so I KNOW I have grey roots showing right now, but give me some slack! I just had my hair permed again and I can't color it for another week or two. It's not my fault that my roots are more grey than not....and I do realize that I've got some lines around my eyes, but that's to be expected with having 5 kids, isn't it.
Oh wait...I DO have five kids. Yeah...I guess not many 21 year olds would be able to claim that one.
Maybe I DO look 36.
Maybe I AM getting old.
Maybe I will never have the experience of having to show my ID.
Dang...missed out on that one! :0)
