Boobs On The Ground
By Michele Herman, http://www.MidLifeCafe.com
~ There`s nothing like the feeling of walking past a guy and he takes a second glance at you. You look back w/confidence, smile and swing your hair. The only thing swinging these days are my boobs!
I thought for sure as small as I am they would never sag...WRONG!!
In fact, everything has gone south. I also dye my hair faithfully so the grey won`t show. My purse no longer holds my make-up bag. I even have a tweezer on my key chain for those hairs on my chin. You know the ones , they can only be seen looking in your rear view mirror while waiting at the red light. I thought about breast implants or a tummy tuck but, with those costs I`d rather put a down payment on a house!
I joke about having a mid-life crises, truth is, I think I am going through it. Putting all the physical nit picking aside, it is more mental. I feel like I should be having more fun. A trip would be nice w/ a few girlfriends, sitting by the beach, a drink in my hand, not a worry in the world. But I know every few hours I would be calling the kids to see if they are ok.
I can`t remember what it was like not to have a care in the world. Hell, I can`t remember yesterday. But somehow I know I was more carefree. I was never this responsible. What is it about mid-life that make some people so hard on themselves? Hating the way they look, thinking they have wasted all this time to get no where. Wonder if it`s just the feeling of knowing you have truly grown up. Which is a good thing, but I`m still going to take that trip one of these days. Throw my cell phone in the ocean and forget my daily life for a while. Well , maybe not throw it in the ocean, the baby sitter might call.
