I kid you not: a woman I really like, who I consider a friend, said this to me at lunch the other day. To her credit, she looked a little chagrined… but she didn't take it back. She waited for an answer!!!! Am I wearing a sign that says, "Abuse me, please. My ego is way outta hand."?
So, no, I am not 60 yet (although it's creeping up: I'll be 54 in about 3 weeks and, yes, I'm a little depressed about that). And, yes, I've had my eyes done. Please, whatever you say, do NOT mention my weight, do NOT ask me if I would consider voice lessons, and do NOT ask me if those giant handsome boys are my grandchildren. Otherwise, we can talk about anything at all. Thank you.
