Fetus? Embryo? College Student?
[cue dramatic rambling]
My mom sent a facebook link to a girl I knew from preschool. She’s gorgeous! It’s crazy to see how people grow up. I mean, you remember someone in your head as this little kid, this little 4 year old, right? Then you see a picture of this beautiful grown woman and you’re told it is the same person. Mindexplosion!!
I was on the phone with my mom while I looked at the picture and could only think…geez, why don’t I look like that? And that isn’t to compare in a physical way such as height or whatnot. But I have always looked young for my age. Way young. I still look like I just entered high school! Granted, I don’t straighten my hair all the time or know how to get perfect curls everyday (I kind of luck out when that happens) and I don’t do that foundation business. I only like eye make-up and maybe some lip gloss.
I distinctly recall being in high school (sopohmore I believe), going to a restuarant with my family…and being handed a kids menu. TEN AND UNDER.
So does this mean I’m doomed to look underage forever? Nooo!!!!
I told my mom I looked like an embryo. She said I was exaggerating.
I tried to use a zygote as a better metaphor.
She only laughed.
My plight continues.
