Thought for Today...

Yesterday, I looked at a picture of myself, and thought, "You really look like an old fart."
Then later, I had two friends misguess my age by a minimum of seven years. Hmmmm, was I being too critical of myself... or were they just being kind?

Would you, as a friend, tell another that yeah, you're an old fart... or would you be kinder?

depends on how he asked....if i thought he really wanted to know then i'd be truthful..and how old you view someone is based on where you are yourself.....what used to be old for me is now looking very fresh and young...

First of all.....I can't believe that you are an old fart! And if you are you are one hell of a sexy one! And now, I'll admit that I told my hubby he was acting like an old man the other day. I know.....not so nice. But, sometimes I think you are only as old as you feel....and act.....and he was just acting very very old! His father was a mean old man who made himself and those around him just miserable at times....and I promised hubby early on in our very long marriage that if he EVER acted like that I'd leave. So, once in awhile I just have to remind him!

I`m an honest person, but also diplomatic, no good at guessing anyone`s age, have been told many times I look much younger than my age, and I say thanks, but don`t believe them, it`s my face and I`ve watched it age. Guess I would say my oily skin has helped defy the severe wrinkles and I am a modern girl. Anyway, I too would say 'old fart' as an affectionate term, but never say it with malice to a friend and pick them to bits nor lie if they asked.

Anyway, I have visited your blog on Recommendation from your pal,
, after a promotion by ShayeDK to get some more 'airtime' for great bloggers who may be new or not getting the attention they deserve for thought provoking and wonderful, interesting blogs. If you`d like to check it out and maybe find some other blogs you may like to see for yourself
