Does It Mean You're Getting Older When.....
..... a pillow crease that you got on your face doesn't fade until after lunchtime?! I made a sleepy grab for my freebie airline issue eye mask this morning when I was woken at 5.30 by the light creeping in under the black out blind. When I crawled into the bathroom at 6.45 (ish) I spotted the crease down the left side of my face that had been caused by the elastic strap of the cheap but effective mask! Oh well, I thought, it'll be gone by time I apply one of the magic creams from my bathroom cabinet, if not, definitely by the time I leave the house. Having gone to the bathroom at work and looked in the mirror, I was somewhat dismayed to see the offending scar-like manifestation still there at midday! Guess the spring back collagen factor is somewhat lacking these days then! Someone in my office who shall remain nameless but nineteen, also has this aging effect on me occasionally. He was talking the other day about dressing up for a party whose theme was cartoon characters of childhood memories... the fact that he choose Buzz Lightyear almost made me spray my coffee in a most unattractive way, straight across the desk! He also says "Oh my days" a lot whatever that means! "My days" generally consist of deflecting Small Child's next Wobbly, Working, Washing, Wine and, here and there, a bit of self indulgent Writing! Actually when you put it like that I think I prefer 39 to 19 any day.... the only W i'd swap with him is the Wrinkles! Note to self: I've mentioned eye masks in two posts now... perhaps I should by a nice slinky silk one from figleaves.com in order to try and look more like Holly Golightly as opposed to a jet lagged traveller on Quantas!
