Too Young To Be The Mother of the Bride
Don't worry...I've checked the math and technically I am old enough to be the mother of the bride.  Although my body tells me a different story when I get up in the morning, my head is still saying I am 25.
I have played the game with myself.  Telling grand stories in the middle of the night in my head that the 40's are the new 30's...a statement I have never heard come out of any thirty year old's mouth.
