how to make a girl feel old

"This is so many! It's like a candle forest!"


Imagine what he would have said if we'd actually used 38 candles instead of the 18 I managed to scrounge up from the junk drawer.

On the other hand...

how to make a girl feel young:

A lady at youth conference last weekend asked me who my parents are
(just making small talk and thinking she might know them I suppose).
I told her Wayne and Glenora, but they live in Alabama so she probably didn't know them.
She laughed and said,
"Oh! I thought you were one of the youth!"


She thought I was 20ish years younger than I really am.
Maybe she didn't have on her glasses because my wrinkles and gray hairs are kind of hard to miss.

I'll take the compliment though.
I'll take them any way I can get them.

You do have a young face, you lucky duck! You most certainly don't look your age. Hope you had a smashing, fabulous, spoiled-rotten sort of birthday! :)

Pretty cake! You don't look a day over 22!
