40 of 40: Day 32 & 33
OK - SICK! oy!
Anyhow, no excuse.
So, I just finished watching the latest episode of GLEE on FOX which I love! This week, Kristin Chenoweth starred as a woman who dropped out of high school 15 years earlier, now making her 33ish. Through out the show, the high schoolers kept referring to her as "ancient" and "old." Harsh. However, what do you expect from the high school set?
That said, that is the only place I feel 40 is a detriment to my street cred - with young people. To them, 40 sounds really old - and it won't in about 20 years. I used to be my church's youth leader and young peope have always been important to me. So, even to feel old to them makes me a little blue.
And, if I'm being completely honest (and why not), even men in their 20s whom I have been known to date, think 40 is, well, ancient. That's a kick in the nads! I know I don't look 40, but I never want to resort to lying about my age; I think it lacks grace. I mean to grow old gracefully, with a smile, grey hair and a well chosen wardrobe... and perhaps and younger man on my arm. is there a male equation of a cougar? lol
