What’s In A Number?

Also Know as: How Casey John won his newest (stuffed) puppy at Fiesta Texas.

We had just spent money on playing a boardwalk type game so that Zach could win his own stuffed Spongebob and Casey John was feeling left out and was also wanting one. I however wasn’t willing to spend another $12 on something that I knew wouldn’t last. So I told him that if he saw an animal he wanted to tell me and we would try to win it. Well he found yet another stuffed puppy at a game where some 18-20 year old kid had to either guess your weight (ha, like I’d do that), your birth month or your age within two years.

Now I’ve had success with the age guessing before because I tended to look a little younger than my state of Texas drivers license says I am. I used to dislike that but each year I get closer to 30 I enjoy it more, I still get asked to see ID for alcohol every now and then (usually only if I am sans the two little guys). So I figured I could stump this very sweet looking 19 year old girl and get him the puppy.

Well, I stumped her, and he got his puppy. That’s because she guessed my age to be… drum roll please…. 39!!! I asked if she was serious and she said I sorta looked like her mom and I had kids and all (I think she though Aunt Mary’s next door neighbor who is 10 was mine) and her mom was 39 so it seemed like a good guess. I almost died laughing. I said well I’m only 28 and I can show you my license if you don’t believe me. I think if I would’ve made her feel any worse we may have gotten another stuffed animal… Ah I can already see the benefits of getting older. 😉
