On Monday, I didn't get a position because I'm looking older. It wasn't said so starkly, but words like vibrant and fresh kept popping up. It's hard to explain unless you were there. There to see their expression as they see your face for the first time. There to hear the disappointed tone in their voices before they even ask the first question. I'm no longer a dewy youth. I'm 42.
