you look like a twelve year old

Thus said the cashier when I handed her my ID for a purchase that requires identification. She said I don't look my age. Well, almost everybody says that to me. It used to elicit both amusement and annoyance because it is funny being thought as a kid when you are nearing thirty and annoying because you have to be carded all the time you buy a lottery ticket. Tonight though I told her at least I am two years older since I used to be told I looked like a ten year old, lol. I can't help the way I look. I am short, sorry, petite. And of medium build and not very well gifted in areas that matters so when you look at me from an angle you will really think I am younger. I have a number of people take second glances at me like I am some kind of freak, lol. I will take these words as compliments for right now. I know when the wrinkles start to be dominant on my face it will not be funny anymore. But it might be years before it happens as long as I take good care of myself.
