Surely I can't look that old!!

  1. Have You Ever Been Guilty Of Looking At Others Your
    Own Age And Thinking, "surely I Can't Look That Old?"
    Well... You'll Love This One!

    I Was Sitting In The Waiting Room For
    My First Appointment With A New Dentist. I Noticed His Dds
    Diploma, Which Bore His Full Name.

    Suddenly, I Remembered A Tall, Handsome, Dark-haired
    Boy With The Same Name Had Been In My High School
    Class Some 40-odd Years Ago. Could He Be The Same Guy
    That I Had A Secret Crush On, Way Back Then??

    Upon Seeing Him, However, I Quickly Discarded Any Such
    Thought This Balding, Gray-haired Man With The Deeply
    Lined Face Was Way Too Old To Have Been My Classmate.
    Hmmm,...or Could He???

    After He Examined My Teeth, I Asked Him If He Had
    Attended Morgan Park High School.

    "yes. Yes, I Did. I'm A Mustang," He Gleamed With Pride.

    "when Did You Graduate?" I Asked.

    He Answered, ! "in 1959. Why Do You Ask?"

    "you Were In My Class!" I Exclaimed.

    He Looked At Me Closely.

    Then, That Ugly, Old, Wrinkled Son-of-a-gun Asked,

    "What Did You Teach?"

    Too funny, krisco! I've seen people my own age, and think to myself - Is that how old I'm suppose to look! It's shocking to look at someone my own age who looks so much older than me.

    i didn't expect that ending.
    that was great.
    and i do get called "ma'am" quite often.
    but i also got called "ma'am" quite frequently, when i was in my 20's.
    and my dh and sons, still think i am beautiful.
    what else matters?

    It's been my personal opinion that men tend to have rather diluted self-image once they reach a certain age. I'm talking about the guys in their 50s-60s that still think they can hit on & "get with" girls in their 20s:icon_roll .

    One of the regulars @ a bar I frequent is this creepy, white-haired, blatant ogler . He always sits alone, sips his mug of beer and just stares at different girls @ the bar. I call him "Staring Guy,":stone & have personally asked him on more than 1 occasion to quit staring at me. It creeps me out:trout: ! A friend of mine who's approaching 60 informed me that graduated high school with Staring Guy & that Staring Guy is a teacher @ our local high school now.

    So, 1 night, me & a few friends were sitting around drinking @ this bar. I'd seen Staring Man when I walked in the door, sitting a couple stools away from a group of girls in their very early 20s who were dressed to impress (teeny tiny mini skirts, tank tops, you know the type). After awhile, Staring Man must have inched his way into these girls conversation (no doubt, in an attempt to hit on them) & said something inappropriate because all of a sudden 1 of them screamed, "Oh my God! You used to be my English teacher in high school!" Staring Guy actually looked a little embarrassed & lurked away from this group to find other unsuspecting young girls to ogle at. Nonetheless, I did not feel bad for him...this is what you get when you're a 60 yr old man & you stare & try to "get to know" girls that far out of your age range .

    LMAO!!!

    You cannot look worse than my mom at 47?. She may have kept her high school figure but she has crow's feet, age spots out the butt, etc. And she was completely gray by 27. Trust me, you look better.

    Wait, isn't that what I'm going to look like???? OMGosh, thank God for plastic surgeons.

    I'm proud to say that all the teachers I've come across, every one has said "Elizabeth, you look exactly the same as you did in high school!" But, then again I'm only 26 so it couldn't be a big difference.

    food for thought: this was a joke that was sent to me...I did see a high school classmate and wondered to myself if I looked as "old" as him?

    Hey, watch how you talk about us old bags---I'M 47!!! (Well, not for much longer---my birthday's next month.) I haven't kept my girlish figure, but I'd like to think my laugh lines, neck wrinkles, and yes, age spots add character, not ugliness. And my hair is only about 25% gray, thank you very much.
