|My latest picture - taken in Ferndale, Ca|
Okay, so after Wednesday - while I did laugh at what the little girl said - it really did hit me. I DO have cracks in my face. I can see how a little kid would wonder, what the heck are those???? All in all, I'm okay about being 60. I admit, at times I use it as an excuse, even though I can still do a lot. It's like my e-coupon. I pull out my 60-card, when I want to get out of something or don't want to do something. HEY, I'm 60, I CAN DO THAT!
When you are in business - with real live people in the real live world - even if you are 60 - they expect you to look and act like you are 30. No excuses there!
So, I find out that there is a rock-star-marketer here in my town, who is one of the top leaders of my company. I thought I was the only one in town. (There goes my ego) I contact her through Facebook (that is where most of my business takes place) and I find out, that not only is she smart, successful, and rich but she is drop dead gorgeous. She is a model. She is 50 years old and looks like she is 30. I'm not talking cute or even pretty. She is HOT.
So we are going to meet sometime this week for coffee - and all of a sudden, I want to pull out my 60-card - and make up some excuse not to meet with her. Why? She intimidates me. I certainly would never want to stand next to her in a group picture, if you get my drift.
I showed her picture to my sons. They agreed she was HOT. Foodie was sweet - he said it was all fake. But hey, fake or not, she looks good. I showed her picture to the husband. He agreed she was beautiful. Then to make me feel good, he tells me I am beautiful in my own way - that I have a funky-type of beauty. FUNKY??? Is that a compliment?

One of my business friends, told me I was ballsy to meet with her. I have to. I need to pick her beautiful brain - I will be self-conscience though. Plus I have no idea what to wear. I mean I have nothing that could even come close to making me look as good as her. It's supposed to be HOT this week. So I can't hide in big clothes and I won't wear shorts in public anymore because of my 60 yr-old knees.

I am so tempted to pull out my 60-card.
