    28, But My Face Hasn't Changed Since I Was 12

    I am a 28-year-old married woman who is constantly being mistaken for someone much younger. I almost always get ID'd for alcohol, sometimes very rudely by people who make their minds up that I am underage before seeing my ID. I get treated like a child by strangers, I have been...

    Looking Around..

    I'll graduate this year, so I belong to the oldest students in my school. However, I believe that I look younger than most of the other students. The reason for this is probably not my face or something, it is because I don't wear make up. And every little girl is just wearing...

    but the funny thing is that I work with my brother at his pool store and everyone that comes in thinks that I am his son my brother is 37 years old and he hates when people call me his son. Personally, it is funny to me, but I love being mistaken for being in my teens.
