Do I Really Look That Young?

A cop just came to the door, asking if I had the phone number for the neighbors across the street. I didn't, so they asked me if I knew if their parents were home, which I also didn't know. They then asked me, "Are your parents home?"

I kind of spat out that I'm 25, and we exchanged odd stares and a moment of awkward silence. They then thanked me for my time and went back across the street.

Are my parents home?!? What the hell am I supposed to say to that?!?

I just keep telling myself that someday I'll be happy that I look 10 years younger than I actually am...but that doesn't make it any less embarrassing right now.


  1. So what would you say if the police came to your door and asked if your parents were home?

  2. I thought he should have said, "Yes, my mom is upstairs...Carie!"

    But only if the cop was hot.
