I apologize if I appear a little frightening. I don't mean to. I wanted to see what I look like.
I was driving to the gym this morning and for a reason I can no longer remember, I started thinking about middle age.
Sometime I catch a glimpse of myself and think, "Who the heck is that? I don't feel like I look that old. The light must be bad."
So I decided to take a picture of myself, something I don't usually do, just to see if it's true, to see if I really look that old.
Apparently I do.
Several years ago I needed to run to the grocery store. I ran in, grabbed what I needed and was heading to the check out. I noticed a group of young college guys looking at me. Even though this was several years ago I was still surprised. I have never been that girl.
To my further amazement, they walked my way and said, "Excuse us."
I was thinking, "What is going on here?"
Then they said......
"Ma'am, could you tell us what we need to make scotcheroos?"
Ma'am?! Of course I could. Of course I did. Of course. Ma'am? I'm not a ma'am.
Middle age. It's for real.
That's all I have to say.
Over and out.
