When I'm Sixty-Four

When I first started working in the ED, patients would frequently comment on how (inappropriately) young I looked. "What are you, 14" was a common refrain.

Today, over three years later, I can proudly state that a patient guessed that I was 17 years of age. Still well below the mark, but at least I appear to have aged the correct amount, and can almost pass as a high school graduate.

At the rate I'm going, I should finally look like an attending by the time I'm in my mid-sixties.
