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