I took the kids to the park today, because it was a beautiful day.
There were lots of other kids there, too. As I circulated around the play areas, I interacted with them, as I usually do, because I’m nosy.
Anyway, one little girl came up and said, “How old are you?”
“I’m thirty,” I replied. “How old are you?”
“Seven,” she said. Then, blinking in astonishment, she added, “You don’t look that old.”
I said, “Yep, these three are my kids.”
She said, “Those are your kids? I thought you were the babysitter!”
And inside my head, I went, “Dangit! I knew I should have put on more makeup!”
