For the last nine years Matt has made a tradition of watching the San Francisco Giants Home Opener at home with food and beer and guests when possible. This year I was able to join as did his mom, Candy.
It has often happened to me since childhood that people have underestimated my age. I have people tell me they think I was younger by a lot, sometimes even by a decade or so. I also have heard often that I have a young sounding voice, to the point where a telemarketer just a few weeks ago asked me if they could speak to my parents instead. So it was especially funny when Matt put my age on the decorations for my event birthday, which I don’t remember him doing before.
