The fact that I am "old" doesn't really bother me at all. I'm not saying it in a "Oh, no you're not!" kind of way. I actually hate that response. People think the mention of age or the mention of the arrival of the crinkles and wrinkles mean that I need an opposing comment to balance it out.
Why is that?
Why can't someone just agree with me?
Old is also relative, I know. But to me....I am old.
I will look at my hands in certain light and see the sagginess. There you go. That's a comment I can make about my age without it screaming that I need a rebuttal. I'm sure there are creams for "younger looking hands" on the market and some people may be insecure about aging hands, but again.....not bothered.
It's strange though, that's all. I think it just happened sooner than I thought.
