“We all have that one person who insists on telling us the truth when it’s clear a good lie would do just fine. For me this person is my husband…”
Picture this. It’s Sunday, I am planning some content for Instagram and I trying to decide on the hash tags to apply to my posts in terms of age bracket.
Me: “Well, let’s see…I can put a #Over35Style# on that pic…”
Husband: “But you’re closer to 45….”
Me: “Thank you for reminding me and your point is?😒”
Husband: “Don’t you think it’s a bit misleading?”
Me: “How is it misleading🙄? It’s not like I am a snake and my profile pic shows a sheep or something?!”
He took one look at me and surely must have perceived the danger of starting a quarrel with an aging woman this early in the morning. Unless of course, he simply does not care about ruining his entire day.
Husband: “Well, I just think you should be proud of your age…”
Me: “Well, I think I am. I am soon to be 42 and I am not in therapy for it,
Dear husband: “Soon to be 43…”
Me: “Ok, 43! If you want to be this petty🙄….”
But let’s get serious for a moment…🤔🤔
What is it with women and aging? Why is it such a turmoil? Is there something in the way society at large view aging women? Is it because we feel invisible past a certain age? Is it because, us women are vain little creatures who insist on being the centre of attention even when way past our prime?
