Today I cooked dinner with Diego, the 27 year old engineering student from Ecuador.

"How old are you?"


"So are you the youngest in the house then?"

"Well, I think Audrey was born in 1984. I was born in 1983, so she's younger than me."

"But you look much younger."

I mentally look down at my shirt. Am I wearing my Puffy AmiYumi tank top? No.

"Yes, yes I do."

(Merely asking myself "Does my shirt have a cartoon character on it today?" was enough for me to make up my mind.)
