Fair enough. But then we have a case of misuse at hand. For Absurdly Youthful Mother
to apply (and not Playing Gertrude
) the age of the too-young character must be verifiable within the story (e.g. daughter is second grade and mother mentions she is 26). Otherwise it is only a perceptional "looking too young" for the role which is Playing Gertrude
. This can be attributed to miscasting or poor drawing skills for non-live action. In any case, the character is probably meant to be older than appears.
When I go through the examples, I see a lot of examples (Film, TV, Video Games) that talk about the young look of the character without a reference to an actual "absurdly young age" stated in the story.
