Average Asian Aging

Someone showed this to me over the weekend. It's so true!

I hope my asian genes keep me good till menopause. However, I must admit I'm looking forward to the permed hair, fleece jacket and wheelie grocery bag!

Not too long ago, my mom did her after-degree in Education, and her practicum was with a grade 1 class. One of the little girls in the class invited my mom to her birthday party, and this is what my mom had to say:

Mom: Oh thank you for inviting me, but I think you should invite kids your own age.

Girl: You're right. You're really old.

Mom: *mildly offended* Well how old do you think I am?

Girl: I don't know... about Sixteen?

My mom definitely doesn't look 16, but that still made her day.
