for your age

Posted on September 20, 2006. Filed under: Quotes |

You know, reading through ragdoll’s sentiments of feeling old lead me to the comment that drives me quasi-crazy. I mean, it’s always meant to be nice and sometimes it doesn’t drive me crazy at all — it depends on who it’s coming from I guess, but the comment “she’s really great at that… especially for someone her age”. Now, I’ve never actually really felt or acted my “age” if my counterparts along the way were any true indication, and I think I’ve accomplished quite a bit in my life — regardless of age. It doesn’t, however drive me as crazy as a phrase I keep hearing from SO many people lately — that being “hey, that’s not a bad idea”. Implying that it’s a good idea? Or that the person isn’t willing to accept the fact that they hadn’t thought of it? Or is it just not a bad idea, but not QUITE good enough to be a good idea? Perplexing and intellectually stimulating. I know. That’s what I’m here for 🙂
