Say What???

I was driving to my in-law's to pick up my two girls after work when I spotted my girls, my mom-in-law and her neighbor, Mrs B (mom's house and Mr. B's house sits right next to each other) walking the dogs. I stopped the car and started chatting with them on the street while my girls were hugging my legs.

Suddenly Mrs. B said, "Maki, did your mother in law told you about the boys??" I had no idea what she was talking about, so I looked at JT's mom and she said, "Oh, not yet. Why don't you tell her now?"

So, here is the brief conversation.

Mrs B: "You know, my boy J? You saw him the other day, right?"
Me: "Yes, he was just driving home with two friends."
Mrs B: "So, my J goes, {Mom, how old is Maki again?}, so I asked him why? and he said, my buddies think she is HOT!!"
Me: What!? I am 35!

Okay, everybody, I am flattered, kind of. But you know, those boys are 16 years old. I don't know if I should be happy or embarassed about this.

What happened was, we all drove to JT's mom's house on Sunday afternoon to say goodbye to JT's cousins who were visiting from NJ for Thanksgiving. We're helping them loading their stuff to the car when I saw J's car driving by JT's mom's. I saw J's face, so I waved at him and he waved me back. After parking his car, him and the two boys got out of the car, so I said "Hello J!" That was it. Somehow the boys thought I was hot.

They are 16, but they play Football, so they are huge. 16 year old high school kids nowadays look like they are in college. But anyway, I started laughing and Mrs. B was laughing too. Really, I am 35. Maybe I don't look like 35, but I think I could be their mom.

When I think about it, Ashton Kutchr married Demi Moore who is 16 years senior. That's pretty big age difference. Maybe I could handle 23 (and it still sounds like commiting crime), but Maki can no way near handle 16 year old! LOL..

Mrs. B told me that it's always good that young people find you attractive. Maybe so, Mrs. B, maybe so. I prefer "Gorgeous" or "Pretty" or "Beautiful" though. We all use "Hot" these days and it's no different among the teenagers I guess. Mrs. B said, "Alrighty then Maki, I will tell the boys that you thanked them!" Yes Please do!!!

I told JT about the story when I came home. He didn't know whether he should be happy or jealous that 16 year old said his wife is hot. He was kind of confused.

Anyway, I thought it was funny story to share...

Do you have any funny/embarassing moment like this or pick up line?


Franco said...

but really, you had two children and you look great, take pride.
that's so funny.
I don't know where I stand when it comes to age differences, sometimes you can't really tell the age of someone.
what do you put in your kool-aid that keeps you so young?!
tell us your secrets Maki?!

...love Maegan said...

awe, it's cute and YOU ARE HOT!!!!

The Rambler said...

Cause your a hot hot hottie! :)

Watch out Demi, Maki might just steal your man :)

Nah, she got a man!

Sarah said...

You are hot! Those boys weren't joking. So cute, you are a baby "Cougar" Maki! :D

Rachel said...

cute story! I am sure your hubby was flattered!

LadyStyx said...

Aint it great when you look younger than your chronological age? :D

Carrin said...

My man always loves to act jealous when guys hit on me like that but, truth be told, he likes it! I'm sure JT does too!
Take pride in it.

LYDIA said...

I think this is a great compliment - maybe you SHOULD start sharing your beauty secrets.

Savvy Mode SG said...

my sis told me the other day, little boys in my niece's class (5 yr olds) tell her they love her... and they think she is really pretty.

Nicole Marie said...

yeah you are beautiful!! hahaha.

Bayjb said...

Hey that is flattering. yes it's a little creepy the kids are 16 but still, compliment is always nice :)

LBluca77 said...

They thought you are hot because you are my friend.

16 is a bit young, but it is still a great compliment.

Maki said...

Franco: LOL. I would take any compliment from you because we're friends!!! I usually put "I REFUSE TO GET OLD" supplement in my kool-aid. It kinda works!

Maegan: Aw thank you very much, Maegan!!!

The Rambler: Honey, you're one sweet lady:) I love ya!!!

Sarah: Awww, you're so sweet, you know that???

Rachel: You think so???

LadyStyx: I think I need to thank my mom who also looks young for her age.

Carrin: Well, I must say you're very HOT too, so I know why your man acts jealous:)

LYDIA: My beauty secret would be to eat healthy. Eat lot of vegetables and fish - thanks to my heritage. But most of all, I confuse myself by saying I'm not 35.

Savvy: Awe that is soooo cute!! 5 year old is the best age!

Nicole: Thanks:D

Jess: Right? 16 is kind of creepy. But I will take it as a compliment.

luca: You're exactly right! I think we should establish teenage boys club. LOL - ok, now that sounds really creepy. Scratch that off!

Momma Chae said...

Yeah, cougar! :)

ka1t_lyn said...

Hey, take pride that you're gorgeous! It's flattering, if not a bit creepy :)


You are so hot I need to fan myself dear... lol!

MJ said...

Ugh. It makes you feel good in a ew, that's so gross kind of way.

My senior year of college, I was driving home from work when a high school kid pulled up in his new Mustang convertible, top down. I had my windows rolled down, and I looked over because his music was obnoxiously loud. HE PROCEEDED TO HIT ON ME THROUGH MY CAR WINDOW. At the time I was so disgusted, I know I had a horrible look on my face. After overcoming the stupidity of it all, I took it as a compliment that he thought I was so young and "hot."

Oh, and you are quite a cutie.

colbymarshall said...

Hahah! YEAH, hot mama! :-)

Tiffany said...

I think to teenage boys "Hot" equates to gorgeous and beautiful. They just don't have that big of a vocabulary ;) so take it as a great compliment! :)

This was about a month ago where I got into the elevator at work and this man steps in right after me. He looks at me and then says "You are so beautiful" but not in a creepy way so I wasn't scared. I said thank you but then it was quite awkward the entire elevator ride down. hahaha!

My friend always says "Enjoy it while you got it! This doesn't last forever!"

I've been hit on plenty times before by high schoolers...but I think it's because they believe I'm their age.

Maki said...

Momma Chae: LOL!

ka1t_lyn: Okay! I will! :)

LENORENEVERMORE: You're always so funny - thanks hun!

MJ: I can totally picture the look on your face! LOL. But you're HOT!

Colby: Oh thank you pretty woman!

Tiffany: Thank you!! I know what you say about the guy - there are genuinly nice comments people make and I love it. You're pretty!!

Alev said...

Hahaha, I think it's just cute.. Every teenager uses the word "hot" to describe sth these days; even not, don't be freaked, you should be proud that you take such good care of yourself. Keep it up! ;)

Maki said...

Alev: Yeah, I think you're right!

The Puma said...

You should definitely be flattered, and not at all embarrassed!
