Only in Utah


With the recent celebration of my birthday, it brought to mind last year, middle of March. I just turned 30 so you all know that last year I would have turn 29. Are you still with me? I was sitting in Relief Society, in my singles ward, when the RS president asked if there were any March birthday's. I wasn't going to raise my hand because I don't care if they know it is my birthday. Especially since most of them were a good 7 to 10 years younger than me. My friends threw me under the bus. Luckily nobody asked my age. But then just amongst my little group one of my friends whispered "And she will be 25." I replied with "Only 24, Thank you!" Obviously we were joking. The girl (20 year old) sitting next to me did not catch the sarcasm. She leaned over and patted me on the leg and said "It's okay, 24 really isn't that old, only in Utah." I couldn't decide if I wanted to shock her with the truth or just drop it. I just looked at her and smiled and said "Thanks." My friends and I had a pretty good laugh about it the rest of Relief Society. To her credit, at least she didn't think I looked over 24 right?

Utah can be rather confused can't they? Sometimes I wish I would have waited a good few more years to have my stomping ground, so you go! And, I would put you past 24 anyway.
Happy Birthday if I did not wish you one before

WHY are you still going to the singles ward? Remind me again? ;)

You definitely don't look a bit over 24. And yes, I love (NOT) the only in Utah type of comments. You would have thought I was a 65 year old woman giving birth to my first child with the comments I got around Cayson's birth.

Erin is funny!!! Why didn't you tell her your real age. I would've. That would've put her in her place.
