Who am I?

Any guesses as to which 7-year-old is me? 


Not sure anyone has ever failed to spot me quickly. It's funny how some people always look like themselves. It's funny for me to see that familiar face & know what lay in wait. 


I asked someone today if this were a high school job. I'm 28 & I've finished medical school, she said; I don't know whether to be insulted or complimented. 


One thing is that the further I get from 28, the more those years compress, so "28" no longer reads as looking a certain way. The other thing is we get used to our face & see ourselves in the mirror as, say, 30. So if I'm 30, she must be in high school because I'm obviously older. It makes a certain sense, yeah?
