A Birthday Conversation

For when I need to be reminded that I have a young face.  I KNOW.  As though getting pulled out of an airport security line because I’m not allowed to fly without adult supervision wasn’t enough.  

My student: What are you doing this weekend?

Me: Well, it’s my birthday, so I’ll be celebrating that.

Student: Wow! Your 21st birthday! You’ll finally be able to drink!

Me: What?! You thought I was 20 this whole time? What kind of authority do you think I have?

Student: Let’s just say every time you walk into the classroom, I think you’re an adorable freshman. And then you sit in the teacher’s chair and there is confusion.

Me: ………I control your grade.

Student: ………Happy Birthday!
