Better With Age

Posted on

We will go back and listen to “they”…because “they” say that things get better with age. Do we honestly believe that because things do not necessarily get easier with age. I am by no means “old” but what is truly “old”?

I remember when I was 5 and my grandma was about 50 and I thought she was old. When my mom reached 50 I thought she was still young and now my oldest step-brother has turned 50 and he really isn’t old at all. I am 42 so truthfully 50 isn’t all that far away but I am not “old”. I have noticed that there are things that I cannot do as easy as I did when I was 30 but that happens. There are other things that I believe I have gotten better at….I can certainly hold my temper better but still not my tongue. I have more patience now then I did even 5 years ago. I think I am a better mom now than 5 years ago but my kids are older and maybe we are just easier on each other.

Some of the things that do not improve with age…my eye sight, my hearing (at times) are just a couple of things.

Some of the things that really get better with age…good cheese, most wines…good friends and even family. Relationships usually get better over time. Technology gets better in time. The gray in my hair gets maybe not better but certainly greater over time.

I looked at growing older as a milestone. My 40’s have been good to me and in another 8 years you can bring on my 50’s for they will be even better.

Ever lied about age

Posted on

Have I ever lied about my age? This topic really can make me laugh at times. When I was much younger everyone assumed that I was older, now no one believes that I am as old as I am. What’s a girl to do?
There have been times when it is almost insulting to be asked for my ID and other times it isn’t.
Now we have lived in the same town for 9 years now and we only have one liquor store with the same people having worked there the whole time but a few months ago I was asked for my ID. I had to laugh…I turned 42 in October and she wanted my ID. I was so surprised. I have been carded at Wal-Mart when buying my hubby cigarettes, the cashier said that since I looked under 40 she had to see it to verify my age.
I have never out right lied abouty age, I have never had to. Would I lie about my age? Probably not, what’s the point?
