Some guy friend of Katie's that I hadn't met was over (she had a few friends over earlier), and when I asked him to guess my age, he said 26. Wow. People usually guess around 16. I was stunned. And I wasn't even wearing my fabulous Red Hat Society getup (though I definitely don't look over 50, so I'd have a hard time convincing anyone of that). I really AM getting old if I look 26 now... I must have aged 10 years since Confluence, when some guy thought I was the 16-year-old at the table (though Zan definitely doesn't look 23). Good heavens.
Also, Mr. Leftwich (the principal of the junior high when I went there) just died, I think on Monday. He'd been battling cancer for a while.
