"But Why?"

I had at least five people ask me yesterday, "Are you married?" and "Why not?"

Now, granted they were all kids, but still, seriously???? So after they would ask me that I would say, "I'm too young to be married!" and would have them guess my age. The most common answer was 21.

Again...seriously??

I love it when kids think I'm much younger than I am....

Lord, this happens to me all the time. Typically it isn't someone in our age group, but rather a kindly older woman that starts talking to me on the street. Most recent? I was accousted with the marriage question while walking out of the place I vote. What I hate is the pity in their eyes when I say no. Sigh.

I love how kids have no concept of age...

I guess as a kid I always thought 21 was sooo old and I'd be married by then...

Kids say the darndest things!

Take it as a complement - pretty girls are always supposed to have boyfriends, right?
