This is life before you know who you're gonna be... Fifteen.

My best friend and I were hanging out on a boring Friday night in the year 2000.
(couldn't pass it up, right?)
We did what any normal 15 year olds would do when boredom struck.
Rent chick flicks, order pizza, paint our nails and talk about boys. DUH.
Never one to pay a delivery fee, we hopped in the car with my Mom and headed to Dominos drive through window.
We pulled up and waited a few minutes until finally a young guy came to the window and asked for the name the order was under...
I leaned over my Mom and said, "Lacey"
(Ya know... had to get a good look at the guy and see if he was a hottie or a nottie. There was potential.)
He nodded his head, closed the window & headed to the back to get our pizza.
I turned around to chat with my friend in the backseat, when I heard the guy open the window...
"Can I get your phone number?" he asked, routinely, to my Mom.
And then, as she put her hand to her chest & blushed, my Mom said the most hilarious/horrifying thing she could have said in that moment.
"Well... I'm flattered but I think you're a little young for me."

Thank God he wasn't a TRUE hotty ;)Mom & I at my friend's wedding last year
(excuse that squinty eye, I MAY or may have not been slightly intoxicated)
