You must take care of yourself...?!

Postby ali76 » Mon Feb 11, 2008 3:04 pm

OK, this is partly a confession too....?!

My office is located on top of a bottle-shop :shock: and I've been craving something sweet today. I thought rather than being really bad and having chocolate (which I'm hoping to get on Thursday for Valentines Day :roll: ?!) I'd go downstairs and get a diet coke (I know, I know :roll: ). Anyway, when I walked in, 'I've Been Thinking About You' by the band London Beat was playing - so being the crazy person I am, I started singing and dancing along!! The guy says to me - 'you wouldn't have even been born when this song came out'. When I asked him how old he thought I was, he said 21 or 22....bless him, I'll be 32 in August! When I told him that he said - 'Wow, you must really take care of yourself!"

Bless him!! 8) :lol: :P

One good thing about being well covered, it smooths the wrinkles! I'm 41 and I people often tell me I don't look anywhere near that. However, I am hoping for some cheekbones in another 20kg!

Nice to get a compliment though! Keep dancing to keep young.

My grandfather just turned 80 and everyone agrees that he looks far younger.
I am sure that a small % from this is also located in the genes.
So I am happy, as I am already taking care of myself and also have a good gene potential.

That's so flattering!!

I'm 19 and because I'm married as well, people always assume I'm in my 20's (like about 24 or so). Then when they find out that I'm 19 they freak out and start talking to me differently :p So strange :s

Looking at my mother (who's 43 this year and looks about 10 years older), I don't think I'm going to age as gracefully as you lovely ladies!!!
