Querty, you are probably the only person that has ever guessed me to be older than I actually was. Of course, you don't know what I look like, so that's a big factor. 2 weeks ago I was in a book store, and when I checked out the cashier was about to give me a card for the store's reward program. Before she handed me the card, she stopped and said, "Wait. You're older than 16, right?" Then, last summer, my husband and I went to the Mall of America, which has strict rules about unsupervised children. I got stopped by a security guard who asked me where my adult chaperone was, and I asked her if my husband counted as an adult, even though I was old enough to be there by myself anyway. I also get dirty looks when I go into teacher's lounges when I judge at speech competitions.
