Ok, fiends. So I’ve been in a bit of a fog. As you all know, I’m all about looking, feeling and staying younger. Then I saw this picture of Jamie Lee Curtis on the cover of the latest AARP mag. Interesting what she says in the interview, too:
“I want to be older. I actually think there’s an incredible amount of self-knowledge that comes with getting older. I feel way better now than I did when I was 20. I’m stronger, I’m smarter in every way, I’m so much less crazy than I was then.
“I’ve let my hair go gray. I wear only black and white. Every year I buy three or four black dresses that I just keep in rotation. I own one pair of blue jeans. I’ve given away all my jewelry, because I don’t wear it.”
Yikes. I read it twice, then three times. Am I going about this all wrong? Should I let my hair go gray, and give away all my precious dangly earrings and Native American rings, watches and necklaces?
I must say, her hair style looks incredibly tempting. Think of the time I’d save in the mornings…
Should I rejoice in getting older? Becoming more mature; more serious about the beauty of life? Should I stop this insane, smart-aleck behavior? Should I be less cynical, and more docile and agreeable? Should I stop listening to Stevie Ray Vaughan?
I think I should. Ok. From now on, I’m acting more grown up. For real. For good.
Oh by the way…this is flippin’ hilarious.
