Student: "How old are you?"
Me: "31"
Student: "No you aren't. You aren't that old."
Me: "Yes, I am."

As I walk away, I hear her turn to a friend and say, "I want to look that good when I'm old."

I turned around and looked at her, and she kind of turned red. "I mean..."

I love it! This is why I love you teaching. The things Students say...

Plus, what a compliment! The outdoors has preserved your youth!

Ah yes, back in school when I thought 31 was old.
And that 37 (the age I'll be next month) was ANCIENT.

31 is not old. and if it is...well then i guess it's fine with me that i'm "old" now.
30's are the new 20's
we're just owning our 30's :)
