Today at the gym (hooray, i was so glad to be back!) a conversation got started about the new, upcoming season of Biggest Loser. Someone metioned about the "older" people being on there..in their 60's I think. Anyway, we got to talking about ages and this one guy who is in my classes started guessing our ages. (Stupid!--Very, very stupid thing for a guy to do!)
Anyway, he started out with one of my friends, Rene, who is only a few years older than me--and he guessed her to be about 45! If I'm not mistaken, she is 34...so that is 11 years OLDER! Then he looked at me...I could see the wheels turning...so I said, "whoah---wait a minute. If you're guessing Rene is 45...then you better shoot WAYYYY low for me because you're gonna be in BIG trouble if you say something like that about my age!" So, he hesitates for a second and says, okay to be on the safe side, I guess you're about 35.
Now listen here girls...there is nothing wrong with being (or looking) 35...but I JUST turned 30 and I was hoping to give off the impression that I'm in my late 20's maybe..but not in my mid 30's! I know I should just brush it off and let it go...but ever since I left the gym I've been analyzing myself. How I dress, how I do my hair, do I have noticable wrinkles?, etc....
Sometimes I tend to dress a little too young, I think. I mean I shop at the same stores as all my teenage neices and wear some of the exact same clothes...so surely I am not dressing "old."
Anyway, I know I'm making way too big of a deal of this...but I keep thinking about that show on TLC called "10 years younger" and I just wonder....what would they do to me to make me look 25 instead of 35???
I already whiten my teeth, got laser eye surgery, get highlights, work out, wear "young" clothes, listen to "hip" music....
Ohhhh....maybe it's because I drive a MINI VAN?
ha ha ha ...dang that van...if it weren't paid off I'd go trade it in for something young and sporty...but no amount of "young" is worth a big ole car payment again.
Okay...I'm off to make Frosty Cupcakes for the kids Christmas parties at school....ta ta!
