The other day I was shopping with Shannon - a rare occasion for us for several reasons. Generally I do not shop with children. The majority of my kids are not recreational shoppers. This is probably due to the fact that it is rare that a purchase is likely to be made and unless it's a toy - they're not interested. Works for me.
So, Shannon will soon be 14 - amazing - and we were having a girl's day out. I found a cute outfit for her at Macy's - major clearance - and we were checking out. I didn't have my Macy's card, so gave her my ID to look up my account info. Obviously she took note of my age, but I didn't realize that was the catalyst of the conversational exchange we then had. She first started commenting on my coral colored hoodie and what a great color it was on me. Then she proceeded to tell me, in a very thick Asian accent which for some reason made it funnier, how I didn't have any age spots on my face or wrinkles. Well, now that's just ridiculous as it took me a pound of make up to cover both those things up.
