The Truth Hurts

I’m soft and out of shape and old,
I often forget that, truth be told,
I may not look it, but I am,
Quite old enough to be called ma’am.
I’m overweight and easily bruise,
Though I still get carded buying booze.

  1. Indeed. Here I am pushing 36 and yet I still get carded when I go to Systembolaget. It doesn’t happen every time, but it did this afternoon. I’ve even been carded for cigs and for some reason both times it was down when I was visiting Mark in Malmö. Maybe they’re just more vigilant about it down in Skåne. *shrugs*

    • Indeed, I used to find it flattering, but now I think it’s just silly that they think I could possibly pass for 18. Give me a break.

  2. Why, thank you. It’s always funny seeing the look on the cashier’s face when they see how old I really am. They do a slight double-take and then hand the card back to me, saying, “Sorry, ma’am.”
