Robbing the Cradle

When I was working at my previous job, I was heading to a road show with one of the part time employees on our promotions staff talking about our lives. I told him I needed a good man and jokingly told him to bring me some eye candy to the station. Well a few days later, there was a knock on my office door and I turned around to see him standing there...with Brian at his side. He introduced us and told me to show Brian around the station, which of course I jumped at the chance to. And after Brian left, Kevin asked me "Did I do good?" I said yes...but he looks soooo young, I can't date him. So the next afternoon when Kevin came into work he reported back that Brian was actually 27. Being 26 at the time, I thought- OK then! :)

Well today a coworker came up to me after seeing us together and asked, was that your son? My SON??? She said he looked so young that at first she thought he was my son...then thought I wasn't old enough to have a son so she thought maybe he was my younger brother...or I was just robbing the cradle. The more she back peddled out of it, the worse I felt. Seriously, how old did she think I am?!

I guess on one hand I should be happy that as we age my fiance will apparently still look young, along with being young at heart. But as woman, I can't get over this and may need a couple of days of asking everyone, do I look old? until I get my confidence out of the gutter.
