Wherein I Reveal How Shallow I Really Am.

You know, lately, a lot of people have been telling me that they thought I was younger than I am.

It's such an odd experience. For as long as I can remember, I've always looked older. When I was fifteen, I looked twenty. I've only ever been asked for ID once in my entire life, and that was a day I cut school to watch an R rated film with a friend, and it was his fault that I got asked. And you know, truthfully, there's always been good reason to think I'm older. I'm a tall, solid kind of guy and I've been able to grow a beard from when I was, like, five. But lately, when I get asked my age, and I reply that I'm twenty eight, people (female people, actually) say, "I thought you were a few years younger than that."

It's kinda cool.

...

What?

It probably won't last very long, okay. I gotta get my mileage for it.

Quoting Shakespeare (meme)

Out, vile jelly!


Said by Cornwell as he gouges out Gloucester's eye in King Lear.


(If you see this, feel free to quote some Shakespeare.)
