“I said, ‘No, I’m good. I’m 25.'”
You know Simone Biles. I mean, come on.
She is beauty, she is grace, and she also just so happens to be 4 feet 8 inches tall.
Recently, while appearing to be on a flight home from receiving her Medal of Freedom, Biles revealed on Instagram that flight attendants offered her a coloring book – which, ya know, are usually reserved for children.
“Not the flight attendant trying to give me a coloring book when I board,” the Olympic gold medalist joked in reference to the situation. “I said, ‘No, I’m good. I’m 25.'”
Though Biles turned down the offer, I – and many people who came across her post – must admit that the offer sounds very tempting.
Coloring books being offered on planes feels like the perfect distraction for flight anxiety.
And while half of commenters mused on the joy of coloring books, others related to Biles’ experience with tales of their own short king / queen woes, like this 36-year-old who is still offered children’s menus:
Or this woman who was mistaken for a child when a door-to-door salesman came knocking:
This 30-year-old is still carded but finds joy in being mistaken for a student and getting student discounts:
And this unsuspecting adult was just minding their business, waiting on an Uber when a school bus stopped to pick them up:
Sometimes, though, commenters said the experience can be a little condescending.
But Biles seems to have taken the mixup in stride. What a queen!
