Woman? Me???

Um, recently, someone referred to me as a "woman". I was like, "Who -- ME?" I think I may have even turned around to see if there was a woman behind me.

I don't know why... but it sort of bugged me the entire day. I always refer to myself and my friends or sisters as "the girls". We even have "Girls' Night Out"... not "Women's Night Out".

Being called "ma'am" doesn't bother me in the least bit. In fact, I accept it as a form of respect. But -- WOMAN? That's what I call those ladies whom, y'know.... are my mother's age! (no offense, Mom...)

When did I grow up?

I grew up when my older daughter turned 20. I could no longer convince myself that I was 20 if she was.

it is so sad that I still, in my mind, answer to YOUNG WOMAN. Lady? meh. Ma'am? Too American for us Canucks. And WOMAN?! I would rather you call me something else.

My girlfriends (NOT my womanfriends) call me WAY WORSE NAMES!!!! lol
