I'd like to thank you for the huge compliment you gave me yesterday. When you asked me, "Shouldn't you still be in school?" I was confused at first. You may have noticed that I immediately reached for where my nametag belongs (it wasn't there). You also may have noticed the confusion in my voice when I said, "We got out at 2:30." There was no need to apologize after you told me that you thought I was ditching high school early. None at all. In fact, you may now be my hero. Please don't feel silly, because if someone mistakes me for 18 (instead of 40...which I'm closer to), then they are a truly wonderful person. Thank you again for the confidence boost.
