Today as I was sitting at a red light I looked in my rear view mirror and I saw a long one inch grey hair popping out of my eybrow. What on earth??? OMG! Is this the beginning? Are grey hairs going to start popping out all over my body? What’s next? I am frightened to think about it. And while I am thrilled to be alive, I am very vain, and growing older just sucks! I hate that I cannot wear mini skirts. I hate that when I get ‘all hottied up’ younger guys look at me and think I am a pathetic cougar trying to look 18. I hate that I have to watch what I eat and then work out three times harder than I did ten years ago. It pisses me off that I cannot eat a bowl full of chips and dip. And it really drives me crazy knowing that I am 5 years to 50! I am not going down without living it up. The way I see it, hey, I have it pretty good. And why shouldn’t I enjoy it. So, I will never be the hottest ass at the party again. But to my husband I have a pretty hot ass. Instead of thinking the best years of of my life are over, I am looking forward to what’s next. And I thank GOD that I am still here, greys, cellulite, and all.
OMG Darla that is so funny about the crazy gray hair. I found one of those just last year jutting from my jaw – I nearly wrecked my car trying to pull it out while looking in my rear view mirror! And I wondered, just how many people SAW that crazy gray hair and NEVER said ANYTHING. My hair stylist, my dentist, my personal trainer, my children, my friends, my husband(!), etc. . . I carefully study every inch of my face now. You never know when one of those suckers will pop out again!

I am a little over two years to 50. I started having hairs pop out in unwanted places several years ago. It is the worst thing for me about getting older! I am going to live it up also, Darla. I feel that age is an attitude and I strive to be young at heart.
