i love that last little bit....still the same on the inside, its just the outside that has changed a bit...i hope that is just the way it is...

Ron said...

Loved this, Valerie!

And yes, it happens to us men as well :)

What a great finish...

"On the inside, I'm the same old me, It's the outside's changed a bit."

Have a terrific Thursday, dear lady!
X to you and Joe

I suppose it's happens with men, too, although it doesn't seem as traumatic. My husband's hair is getting a bit gray ... no big deal. Me, I have a box of Revlon Auburn waiting in the bathroom. ha!

I don't even want to to discuss pantyhose. *sigh*

Valerie said...

BC, you're welcome. I think I got it from there ha!

Brian, yep, that's definitely the way it is.... apart from the shoe size!

Valerie said...

Hi Ron, I guess I was feeling a bit rundown when I posted this. Wondering now if men suffer more or as much as women in the ageing process.

Valerie said...

Mary, maybe it's best not to mention pantihose. Who knows where that might lead. I gave up with hair dye when someone told me silver hair was really attractive. Yes, I'm preening....

Laughing, laughing, laughing. Can so relate!

Mel said...

*laughing* Oh can I relate. I thought the pantyhose deal only happened for us taller gals with big feet (already at a 10, I shudder to think what it'll be when I age a bit more.....).
Okay....gotta look on the bright side! We GET to be here. :-)
AND we get a discount at the iHop pancake house!

Valerie said...

Gosh, Mel, I wish we had a deal off our pancake house...you lucky girl.

Mmm 10? wonder what size that is in the UK.

Mr. Shife said...

And you are still awesome too, Val. Take care.

Haha! Well, I bought a pair of tights the other day and though they were my size according to the chart, they appeared to be made for someone at least a foot taller, and quite a bit thinner, so I can identify with that part!

And today I read a wonderful passage in 'Mort' by Terry Pratchett. An old woman dies and as her soul is released she is seen as a semi-transparent version of herself which rapidly changes: her grey hair uncoils, changes colour, and lengthens, she gets slimmer and taller, and the wrinkles vanish, and her curves return ... and Mort says to her 'Wow, is that who you used to be?' And she replies: 'It's who I've always been'.
