If I ever feel old

Occasionally I'll have a little bout of realization that I am getting old. I see my friends getting married...buying houses...and just doing 'adult' like things. Little kids call me a 'lady' and on occasion, I will find a grey hair or two. Tonight, I put on a warm old sweatsuit with my High School's name on it and handed out candy to the cute little fairies and goblins in the neighborhood. When I opened the door, one group of kids said, "Trick or Treat! Oh Foothill!" I handed out the candy and asked, "Do you guys go to Foothill?" The group proudly said, "Yeah, we're freshman...are you a sophomore?" Sophomore??? hahaha. That's a good one. They thought I was nearly a decade younger than I really am...they must not have seen the grey hairs. A little taken back and amused, I told them that I had already graduated college and was much older than they thought. The expression on the guys faces was of complete shock. Thank you random kids for making me not feel old but at the same time making me feel ancient.
