Forty-something

Today I turned 44 years old. OMG, just writing that down pains me!!! That's a lot of years!!!! lol The weird thing is, I look in the mirror I don't see "44 years old", I just see me. Saturday afternoon, my besties and I took in the second to last Astros game of the season. We eventually met a group of guys that were there celebrating their friend's birthday. When they found out mine was a mere hours away, one of the guys asked me how old I was going to be. Not one to have a problem revealing such information, I told him. He almost fell over! "No way! You're lying! Let me see your ID!" I told him I wasn't lying and put my license in his face to prove it. "You look so much younger! I thought you were at least 28 or 29!" ----I could have kissed him right then and there! lol And then today, at the casino, I met a young girl, also from Houston, she was all of 22 years old. She asked me if I was old enough to drink!!! Seriously!!! (I made a mental note to return to Louisiana as often as possible for ego boosting!) When I told her how old I was, I thought I was going to have to help her lift her jaw off the ground. haha The guy from last night asked me what my secret was. I responded by telling him that I had no secret. I just had parents with great genes!!! lol

All kidding aside, true or not, maybe it was the birthday gods playing a trick on me, or maybe I was somehow being secretly taped for an upcoming "Punked" episode (provided that that show still aired! lol) whatever the case, my self-esteem was lifted in ways mere words cannot describe.

I'm 44 and holding.

I'm in shock, too! Your writing style and content make you seem much younger. Just remember that 44 is the new 24 and 50 seems mighty young when you're 60 like me! (LOL)

Seriously, you actually can put aging on hold. You are already doing an excellent job of it. Think young, act young, and you will stay young (like me).

Once again, happy birthday, Yvonne!
