Ego Boost

I am not sure how we got on the subject (I was getting some training from the production accountant on the software we are transitioning to- thank god) and he said he thought I was 22!!!

Hello? Really?


Of course I couldn’t just say thank you- I brushed it off by prefacing that Asians are lucky until we hit about 65 or 70 and then we age about 50 years within a week.

It has been a rough couple weeks and I have been feeling kind of sh!tty- getting dumped can play with your mind (just a little).

Even though this was coming from someone who plays for the other team, it was a nice shot in the arm. Of course he was probably underestimating just in case (there is nothing worse than erring the other way) but it was flattering nonetheless.

But why should that be flattering? Our self-esteem is inextricably tied to our appearance- that makes me wonder how I will react when people start guessing my age, or worse.

But it should be 25 years before that happens- if I’m lucky.

  2. Thanks for the double shot- but you are biased!
