Today, I finally gave in and had a low-light done at Wally world. Looking into the mirror was so dang depressing, and affecting my self-esteem making it imperative to get it done. I've been carrying around a fifty dollar bill in my purse for over two months; folded and tucked away for such an emergency!
Does looking in the mirror shock you sometimes? Make you do a double take and say, "egad, who's that old gal that looks just like my long dead grandma?" What happens to us? How do our faces shift so?
I'm 22 on the inside baby....but old, gimpy and crinkled is what the world sees. When did that glacier slide right on over me?
Anyway....I'll put my big girl panties on and deal with it.
It got me thinking though, of the year 1951, and who besides Jim and I were born that year. Just put the year you were born in search and see what names pop up and surprise you.
Other '51'ers were: Dan Fogelberg, Cheryl Ladd, Sting, Robin Williams, Mark Harmon, Dale Earnhardt, Al Franken, Sally Ride, Peabo Bryson, Phil Collins, Yakov Smirnoff, Crystal Gayle, Rush Limbaugh,Tony Danza, and scads of others! I'm thinking many have had chemical/surgical help over the years, as the decades just don't look as bad on them.
