Thank god I'm not there yet lol :P
I always thought I could handle aging but as I approach 40, I realize I'm going to fail miserably. *sigh*
I've seen 'em older, too.Anyway, today my mid-day crisis was I couldn't find my keys after shopping at my nieghborhood grocery store. Even looked through my purse and the bags of food I purchased. Even walked out to the car to make sure I didn't lock the darned things in it. Went back inside the store and had a clerk escort me through the store searching the aisles for my keys. When we reached the freezer section. I looked in my purse again. This time I found them in the cell phone compartment. Eyeglasandkeyhiemers.
After a couple hours at the gym, I feel old.
I try to avoid mirrors whenever possible. Certain things may appear larger and more wrinkly than they actually are--I hope.
Oh my goodness, I've had my afternoon laugh. This was great! I look at the mirror and tell it to shut up all the time, but it's more about the giant zit on my nose or something, lol.
Stopping by from the A-Z challenge list and really enjoying your posts! I'm definitely following and looking forward to more. Too funny!! :)
I'm only 19 so maybe I'm nobody to talk, but I hate how the media makes everybody feel bad about something as natural and beautiful as age-ing. It does this by always showing "beautiful and young" people as models and selling products that "bring our youth back". Nothing can bring your youth back, and why should you want that? Everybody has a chance at enjoying every stage of their lives, and each stage comes with its perks. You are old and you are beautiful :)
Thanks for the comments on the Mid day Crisis. I had to work on Saturday, so promise to make up visiting all those blogs I missed. There should be a law against working Saturdays, especially on beautiful days you know? Anyway I have fun writing about the aging and I can still laugh at it, that is a plus. They are still selling hair dye a big plus. Actually I haven't turned gray which is a pure miracle in itself. We can't stop it from happening, but we can have fun and laugh.
Your grandson's comment was hilarious. It is crazy getting older. My husband & I stumbled upon a blues festival yesterday in Jacksonville Beach. It was crazy. People dancing and drinking all over the streets. I saw more women in bikinis that probably should have been wearing one-pieces than I'd ever want. We walked around a bit and then naturally began walking back to our car, without even voicing that we wanted to leave. It was too much for me. I felt out of place. If that means I'm getting older, I don't care. I just couldn't keep up with that kind of crowd anymore. Thank God for my quiet life!I agree, working on Saturdays should be outlawed. Hope your Sunday is good.
I was terribly excited to get into my thirties until I started having to work at my weight and actually developed acne and all kinds of hormonal issues. Now, admittedly, I'm beginning to fear what my forties will add onto that pile. Boooo aging!Shannon at The Warrior Muse, co-host of the 2012 #atozchallenge! Twitter: @AprilA2Z
Great post! Growing up as the oldest of 4 kids in a truly dysfunctional family, my midlife crisis started when I was about five. :DSo for me, getting older has pretty much been a breeze. 40? Been there, done that. And it just keeps getting better (well, as long as they keep making my favorite brand of hair color).
Turning 40 wasn't so bad. But I started getting lovely little wisps of gray hair before I turned 40. I don't have enough to shout out 'gray hair' but enough to annoy me. I don't mind the crow's feet so much, but I can't say I like all the things your body decides to do to you without getting your permission. :S Ah well...Love your blog, very funny! Visiting from the A to Z post. Happy Blogging!
