Why do those words irritate me so much? Why do I not want to be “so young”?
Twice in the last week I have gone to get together’s with a lot of new faces. In the course of regular conversation I was asked my age. First off, isn’t it rude to ask a woman’s age? Come on, just leave me alone. I don’t ask how old you are. I don’t care how old you are, to be precise.
Sure, I might have started off my “adult” life by getting married young. Is that so bad. I have been married for almost 7 years (come March). I was married 4 years before we had kids. Yes, there is a chance my oldest will remember when I turn 30, as he will then be 5 1/2.
Why am I so quick to be older, still? I know this is definitely a symptom of a teenager, but now I’m in my late 20’s and I should be happy about it. I should say, “Haha, you are in your not in your 20’s, sucks for you!” Whenever someone says those damn words, “You’re SO young!” It makes me feel as if I’m 15 with two kids and not a clue as to what is going on in the world.
Damn my bangs and smooth skin. Tomorrow I am going to shave my head and get a tattoo on my forehead. Look who is the responsible adult now!
