In my youth I was often thought to be much younger than I was. I attribute this much to the fact that I was incredibly skinny. At 5’ 5’’ I may have weighed a whole ninety pounds. It didn’t matter what I ate. I couldn’t gain an ounce.
One time I was at a restaurant with my dad. We were travel weary and waited on the bench inside the entrance of the place. When the waitress came out she asked me if I would like the under twelve menu. I was twenty one!
I’m glad people don’t mistake me for twelve anymore, but now it is nice when folks guess me much younger than I am!
