well, I think I look at least 21...

I was leaving my lessons yesterday, walking through the schoolyard, and a kindergartner stopped me:

boy: "Hey! Do you remember that time when you subbed for us in Miss L's music class?"

me: "Yes, I do."

boy: "Are you Willa's mom?"

me: "nope."

boy: "Well, who's mom are you?"

me: "I'm nobody's mom."

boy: "Oh, because you're just a teenager, right?"

me: (laughing) "No, I'm not a teenager."

boy: (confused) "Oh. Well, you look like a teenager!"

my fiancee did a lot of touring elementary schools, and they are so funny about age! When a kid asked how old she was, she turned the question around: 'how old do you THINK I am?'. The two most popular guesses were 17 and 70. She was 22 at the time.

Gotta love it though.
