It’s my birthday and I’ll blog if I want to

9 Dec

Yesterday I had a conversation in the car with BigHugs about 30 seconds after I had dropped her off at school.  I was just talking out loud in the car, as you do when someone else is in the car and you’re trying to communicate with them, when I suddenly remembered I was alone.  I even said out loud, “And there’s no one in the car with me.”

The other day I was talking on the phone to my oldest sister while I was getting ready for the day and I casually mentioned how dry my face had been lately.  She asked what kind of moisturizer I was using, and when I told her the same drugstore moisturizer I’ve always used, her response was, “No offense, but you’re getting older now so you need to start using a better moisturizer.”

Have I mentioned Mr. T is driving?

So yeah, I get it—I’m old.  But I’m cool with it.  Mostly.

I just wanted to thank you all for your part in making life in my advanced years worth living.  Hopefully, after the holidays I’ll be around a little more.  I’ve missed you.

    Happy birthday! You’re younger than me, so you can’t be that old! 😉

    Happy belated birthday. Hey, I just remembered I forgot to call you yesterday!

    P.S. Let me know what kind of moisturizer you decide on.

    Does anyone ever say anything un-offensive after saying “No offense”? 😉

      I wonder what kind of reactions I would get if I went around telling people, “No offense, but you look really nice today.” Would it be offensive to phrase it that way?

        LOL…that might be a nice surprise!

    Lbs, does this mean that I’ll be officially old after two more birthdays? No offense. See? I said it after.

    Happy three days after your birthday! Did you have a good one?
