Double edged

A week or so ago an acquaintance at at church I attended for a while asked Pam (who still goes there) where her "young friend" Diane was. Pam probed a little further, and discovered that the acquaintance was under the impression I am in my mid-thirties - a good fifteen years younger than my actual age.

When Pam relayed the story to me, I preened for a bit (who doesn't want to be told they appear significantly younger than their actual age?), then it hit me...

Was the acquaintance commenting on my looks, OR

Was she commenting on my behavior?
