Green Genes

Recently a fellow soccer mom told me I looked much younger than my age. I've been told that in the past and although I'm not sure whether or not I believe it, depending on what the mirror tells me, I'm always happy to hear it. My son asked me about this, and I half-jokingly told him that many women (except the ones who are truly young and feel they're not taken seriously because of it) love to be told they look young. So yesterday when we were walking into the animal shelter for a visit, he took my hand and happily told me, "Mom, you look like you're about 20!" Next topic to cover: how to sound flattering and remotely realistic. ;-)
