Fairly often, people ask me how old I am. Maybe it comes up because I've told them that I've worked at the Library five years. Or that I played the N64 in high school. Or that it's been almost 10 years since I graduated from college. The response is always the same: shock, gasps, disbelief. "I would never have guessed you were that old!!" At first, I was rather flattered by these exchanges; but now I'm just tired of having to explain it so many times.
