Two weeks ago I had a few high school teenage boys express how "old" I am. We have a 16 year old who works part time for us and one day he was telling us how his parents should really buy him a Mustang while he's still in his "prime" years. I chuckled and asked him what exactly the prime years of life were. His response was 15 to 21!!!!
The very next day our paper boy was trying to make small chat with me I guess...I'd say he was 14 to 16 somewhere in there. Anywho he asked me how old I was...like 21 or something and I said no I'm 26. His response "You look really good for your age"!!!
I still remember being that young I mean seriously I've only been out of high school for coming up on 9 years. I don't remember thinking that 20's were old though! I feel like I'm still an adolescent besides the fact that I'm a mom and wife and I have a mortgage and other bills to pay every month. I still feel like I'm in the learning years.
Who are we to decided what is "old"? I think we only as "old" as we let ourselves be. My dad just turned 50 this January and the man acts younger than a lot of guys I know in their 20's and 30's and I love him for that.
So to those teenage boys who think they're in their primes I say "You haven't even started living yet"!!!
