Mistaken Identity


So, we were at church today (looking just like this and sitting in this order) and someone asked us the most ridiculous question. First of all, we are all dressed so casually because it was supposed to be an outside picnic/church service until it decided to thunderstorm all morning, so that didn't happen. Chloe and Bennett were off somewhere else leaving Chuck, Gavin and I sitting by our lonesome. Someone I had never met before leans over and says, "Hi, I've not met you before, are you guys brothers and sister or just friends?"

And I was like, "Um, excuse me???"

And she went on to repeat her question exactly the same way. It was at this point that I realized she wasn't joking.

While gesturing with my hand, I responded with, "Uh, we're his parents."

"Oh." says lady who has no clue about people's ages.

Awkward moment ensues.

I don't know if she assumes that Gavin just looks older and more mature than he is or we just act and look younger and less mature than we are.

We're still laughing.
