Funny exchange

The doorbell rings.  I answer it.

Julius the tree man:  "Hi.  Is your mom home?"
Me, after a couple seconds of silence: "Um, I am the mom."
Julius, the tree man:  "Oh I am so sorry!  You just look so young!"
Me:  "Thanks!"

It might have had something to do with the fact that I was still wearing my candy-cane pajama pants and a t-shirt when I answered the door, and I wasn't holding Amelia at the time.  I guess I was dressed like a teenager who had slept in until mid-morning.  Still though, I was flattered.
