And on that topic, my mom and I had a Discussion, prompting me to make a poll:
way younger than her actual age.
about her actual age.
way older than her actual age.
too young to buy her own booze.
too old to worry about carrying her ID when she's buying booze.
like she could be a college student.
like she could be a grad student.
like she's out of school for sure.
like she's in her 20s somewhere.
like she's in her 20s or 30s.
like she's in her mid-20s.
like she's in her late-20s.
like she's in her late-20s/early-30s.
like she's between cradle and grave somewhere -- I'm really bad at judging these things.
like some particular age in person, but I wouldn't know, as I haven't seen her in person, and I don't trust the internet for such judgments.
Also Marissa looks
younger with her hair up/back.
older with her hair up/back.
the same with her hair up/back.
different ages depending on how she's dressed.
about the same age no matter how she's dressed.
extremely silly and her face is going to freeze like that.
probably different with different clothes/hairstyles, but I wouldn't know because I've only ever seen her with one style of hair/clothing and can't really imagine a different one.
probably different with different clothes/hairstyles, but I wouldn't know because I've never seen her and pictures on the internet are not enough to judge.
like this one girl I knew once (please specify).
like the rum is gone.
This came up because of our house-painter's behavior (NO, my mom is not here -- I AM THE HOMEOWNER!), and also because of the kid in the drive-through when I was getting food for timprov (that is not even legal, sonny!!!), and also because of my mom's new neighbors (NO, I am not home for the summer, I am home all the time because home is where I live!). But looking older or younger is a value-neutral thing for me -- if you say that I look way older than 28, I will say, "Hah, so there, Mom and lydy, I TOLD YOU!" and not, "Oh woes I look like a shriveled hag of [lower age than the average age of my friendslist]! All of youth's pleasures are lost to me forever, wailie woe!" And if you say I look way younger than 28, that's okay, too, except that you will be wrong like my mom and lydy. But other than that it'll be fine. I won't be mad at you for being wrong. I'm wrong, too, sometimes. (I am being silly here, but I seriously do want to know.)
