A Range of Emotions

Today has been a strange day.

I went to the admissions office of the local Community College today to help my oldest son get registered to take classes in the fall.

It made me feel old and sad.

Then we went out to lunch and someone mistook me for his girlfriend.

This made me feel icky, and yet oh-so-young looking at the same time.

Such a range of emotions I have felt today. I have decided to forget all but the oh-so-young looking feeling. I am also choosing to forget how thick the glasses were of the lady who mistook me for my son’s girlfriend.

Yeah, that would be a tad creepy. Yet flattering at the same time. How did your son take it?

Sadly, he looked agast.

But because I was about to pay for his lunch, he kept it to himself.

That's all right, someone asked me if I was my 5 year old sons GRANDMA! I am 37 for pete's sake!

That's okay, I know what the old hag...err...I mean nice OLD-ANCIENT-DECREPIT lady was thinking. She glanced at my 5'6" daughter and thought she was a teenage mom. Which is even more icky (since she's 11).

That's funny, especially the thick glasses part! Wow, college enrollment- sniff!
