As I nicked an age spot on my leg while shaving it the other morning (it stopped bleeding four minutes ago, BTW), I let out a heavy sigh.
“Man! Same one as Monday, ding dang it!” I thought aloud to my bathroom mirror reflection, which looked back at me and replied:
“The good news is you’re not completely inept. That is NOT the same spot you nearly ripped off with your Lady Bic. The bad news is, a brand new age spot popped up right next to it.”
After getting over the irony of sprouting a “new” age spot overnight (isn’t that an oxymoron?), I started to ponder all that stuff about which you must worry when you’re 50 that you don’t even consider when you’re 20. Things such as:
Hair redistribution. As in, losing it where you want it and gaining it where you don’t. The balancing act on this one is tricky. (READ: more bleaching and waxing, some comb-over creativity, etc.) Speaking of hair…
There's a lot more than just the pompadour, for sure. Find out all about how worries, wanderlusts and waistlines shift over the years in my column:
SAME OLD, SAME OLD? THAT's JUST FINE.
It'll be right here, in the same old spot as always, this Sunday. :-)
See Mt 11:25 R. Alleluia, alleluia. Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom. Gospel Mt 13:10-17 The disciples approached Jesus and said, "Why do you speak to the crowd in parables?" He said to them in reply, "Because knowledge of the mysteries of the Kingdom of heaven has been granted to you, but to them it has not been granted. To anyone who has, more will be given and he will grow rich; from anyone who has not, even what he has will be taken away. This is why I speak to them in parables, because they look but do not see and hear but do not listen or understand...But blessed are your eyes, because they see, and your ears, because they hear. Amen, I say to you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it."
