sweet Davy Jones
I'll be hitting the big 5 0 in October and it is something that I think about a good bit. So much "TO DO" is made about turning 50. I don't feel 50. I still feel 20ish some of the time, yet I know it is reality. The body doesn't lie even though my mind and spirit may be in denial. I think this will be an ongoing theme post for me as I adjust in to this. So here goes installment #1.
1. Last night, my husband and I went out to Chili's and I drank their "Skinny Margarita" at 110 calories ($7). I did not get carded and the waitress called me 'darlin' and 'hon'. (I was just waiting for a 'sugar'.) After my cocktail, I got kinda loud and "kittenish". rrwarh.
When I was in college and 18 with my fake ID, I would go to bars to see bands because I love- LOVE-- music. My friend and I would share $5 pitchers of Long Island Iced Tea or Zombies, and I wouldn't even get tipsey. I would have to corral guys to help carry my friend home, but super shy me had no one to get kittenish with then. And now I do. And the drink prices !
2. Today I have to visit my orthopedic doc to get a refill on a prescription for Mobic- a non steroidal anti-inflammatory for my knees. You would think after 2 cortizone injections to the knees and their pitiful looks at my xrays that they would just refill the damn prescription. It's not Vicodin for gosh sakes. I sound like a crotchety old lady here ( and by God, I need that prescription to go through my mail order for the cost savings!)
3. Boy Toys--my husband is 11 years younger than me , so obviously I like younger men. Davy Jones--God bless him- from the Monkees died recently at age 60. From what I hear he was an exercise nut and a vegetarian. I was a big fan of the Monkees as a kid. Davy, yes, though I was more a Bobby Sherman / David Cassidy kind of girl.
I still swoon over younger guys ( Am I a cougar?) Let's face it , they are almost all younger. Ryan Gosling-yes. Jake Gyllenhall--yes. Zac Efron-yes. Justin Bieber --NO! NO! No! to the HELL no! he looks like a girl..that is tooo young.
JAKE Gyllenhaal-ok, my husband looks like an older and slightly chubbier version of young Jake here.
And the line is drawn...
JUSTIN "Looks like a Girl" B. ..hell to the NO
