OK So I am half way through my blog marathon!!! Woo hoo!!
I have always thought of myself as a young person. As a matter of fact I kinda snicker a little when I refer to myself as a woman. *Snicker* See, I just did it again.
So as you can imagine it is a little jarring when reality comes around and smacks me upside my head.
Case in point, I was working in the leasing office of an apartment complex. I worked with a couple of really young girls in their twenties.
One of these young girls was having man problems and was talking to me about it. I was giving her advice from my vast years of experience when afterward she says to me, "It's always nice to get advice from older women." I had to do a double take. I felt I got gut punched. That was the first time anyone has ever referred to me as an "older woman". Oy vey!
At my current job there is a 35 year old girl running around here yelling "Hi Miss Tee" every time she sees me. Miss Tee this and Miss Tee that.
Then if that wasn't bad enough, the other week I got my very own invitation to join AARP in the mail! I shit you not!
I guess I am just a broken hip away from that rocking chair after all. Can someone bring me my Geritol? Do people still take that? Geesh this is getting worse by the minute.
Stay tunned for tomorrow's post!
