Twenty Nine

twentynine

If money can buy this, I’ll be happy with not having too much of it thankuverymuch.

Every now and then, I click on the FB one of those “where are they now” posts that magically appear on my feed. On Sunday, it was “where are they now, Full House cast.” Now, I was older when Full House came out, old enough not to be gaga over John Stamos (that happened when he was still Blackie on General Hospital. Ooooolala.)

But I still enjoyed the show. It was silly and those little Olsen twins were adorbs. So imagine my surprise when I saw the above picture of the two. Oh well, I thought, we all age. I mean, I guess they were closer to my age than I had thought but I’m pretty bad at keeping track of that stuff. Until I see what their actual age is:

Twenty Nine.

Ummmmmmm, whut?

Yup. Twenty Nine. What in the everlivin’ hellz are you doing to yourself to look like this at 29? How bad do you hate yourself to destroy your skin; hair; and body to this extent? I’m still gobsmacked (Tabitha of Tabitha Takes Over always uses that word, I love it.)

Twenty Nine.

Ummmmm, here’s other girls I know in that age group:

Sara, Victoria, Christy, Elissa, and Katie

Um ya, I’m not clear on Sara’s age but there ya go. She comes back after baby number three and kicks butt from the word ‘GO.’

Kinda takes the phrase, “Hooray for Hollywood” and flushes it down the toilet.

Add, oh I dunno, twenty more years (and then some) and you have girls like this:

But I’m pretty biased. Obviously.

We can only age as we age. Some do it better than others. A lot of that is not in our control. Have you seen a recent picture of Christie Brinkley? Ya, she’s still gorgeous. For those of us who do NOT have those genes, it’s up to us. Eat. Train. Be at Peace with yourself. Drink wine (it’s PROVEN!)

But by gods, I’ll do everything I can to avoid looking like these 29 year old’s.

Everything.

Aging can be fun if you lay back and enjoy it.
