Give me a walking stick!

Do I deserve this? I don´t think so

After all, I am only 31..... kids this days......

I feel old, really, really old. Prehistoric old. I think my wrinkles are growing within the seconds.... why???? You want to hear the story???

It was mean, he didn´t mean too, but it was mean.... it hurted.... really bad...

So there is a young 24 year old guy coming to church. He is from Brazil and he is on his own for the next week. He has been here already 4. He came to Spain for 5 weeks for some intensive spanish classes in the university here. He has been coming to church and he has been a blessing to us, because of his faithfulness and because he has been going with Matthew on visitation and I know that has been a blessing to him.

I tell you this so you don´t hate him after the story I am about to share....

So I thought I would invite him home today, before visitation, so he could have a home meal. Not that I think I am a chef or anything, but hey, at least it won´t be a sandwich.

So we were talking after lunch and somehow the subjet of high school came out. He was asking something and we were comparing it to the way it was when I was going to high school here in Spain.

So then, he said. " Well, I don´t know how it was for you in the old times...."

Then he said something else but I didn´t hear it... as you can imagine..... OUCH!!!!!

So I said "In the old times?" (big smile and everything, at all times he knew I was ok.... although I was thinking about plastic surgery inside :)). Right then he turned bright red, he is not a bad guy after all. He had just realize what he had just said. He tried to fix it.... it didn´t work :) You know guys when they try to fix things.......

Well, trying to help him feel better and me, by joking with my pain I say "I don´t look so old for being 40!!.

Remember, I said I was 31 (which I am).

Total silence...... wrong..... he should had say something like you don´t look 40!!!

But he didn´t....

I think he was to afraid to open his month again.

So this is how I feel now.....

I'm not sure whether to laugh or feel sorry for you. But oh I understand your pain. Getting old is not fun is it ;)

Alicia said...

But, I'm 40, so does that mean I'm old?????

LOLOL..I'm just joking w/ ya! Well, not about the 40, but I hope you know that I mean that in a teasing tone!! :)

Well, what can I say. GUYS! They don't know about ages!!!! Plus, he's so young...he does not know!! LOL

*cringe* Ouch! The other day some guy said my husband looked 30 or 32 and that I looked 28 or 25 -- we are 23 and 24!!! He tried to say it was because we "acted older" and because we were married and already had a little boy, but it didn't make me feel better, LOL! Nobody ever guesses my right age... either it's way too young (most people think I am 14 or something!) or it's WAY TOO OLD! So, I totally know how you are feeling, lol.

Anyway, don't think you look 40 at all -- and I was actually guessing you were 29 or 30 (because of how long you've been married and because you have 3 girls), but I think you look 27 at the oldest. :o)

What ??? I'm so sorry.
You do not look old I promise..

Dani Joy said...

Hey after 30 we start counting backwards! So that makes me 26!!
and that makes you older than me!
You old thing you!

Tell him you´ll hit him over the head with your walking stick if he thinks you´re old!!

Sometimes having little kids makes people thing that you are so much older than you are.

You can be the same age as them, but if you have a little kid and they don't, they think you're older! Not to mention married, which "automatically" makes you older in their eyes, lol!

Of course my kids are older so they can do the math, hehehe!

Oh, and I tried to come up with a word that my hubby wouldn't want to talk about, lol!

Sweetie, I will be 46 in november, but I am not old. Age is just a number, you are precious.

It's funny, but I know how annoying that sort of thing can be! Do something childish and you'll feel better. : )

LOL, oh no!!! He was probably embarrassed...

christy rose said...

Oh Pilar You look fabulous! You are beautiful! You know his thoughts were just thinking that you were a mommy of three so you must be quite a bit older than him. Men just don't think sometimes. Foot in mouth disease is rampant at his age anyways. :)

Mich said...

too funny, although I'm sorry it was at your expense.

You don't look 40... I'm almost 39, I should know. :)

Just visiting from Julia's site. I had to tell you that your story gave me a chuckle. Thanks...even if it was at your expense. (I celebrate my 28th birthday every year now and have been for the past 9 years.) :)
