Firstly: HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope 2010 holds many great things for us all.Secondly: As a new year begins, one cannot help but ponder the passage of time on a personal level. Yes, I realize I am getting... gak!... "Older". But at least I'm not like hubby who is getting "Old Fogier". I see it happening before my eyes. The guy who once rocked out to Zeppelin is the same one who recently, upon waking to the clock radio on the morning of his 51st birthday, uttered the following Old Fogie Standard: "Geez, they'll make a song about ANYTHING nowadays."
I couldn't resist (like any good wife should) pointing out his Old Fogie-ness yet again. "Um, honey, you DO know that Carly Rae Jepsen's 'Bucket Song' is sampling a very old song, don't you?"
He didn't answer... probably feigning selective deafness once more; another O.F. trait. Especially for married male O.Fs.
I refuse to become an O.F. However, at times I have a sneaking suspicion my age may be creeping up. A titch. It irritates me to no end when I find myself having a "Senior Moment". Like yesterday whilst in the shower. (Ha! Got you interested NOW, don't I?)
I mean, how hard can it be to keep only two things straight? I have my shampoo and I have my liquid body soap. Extremely familiar items I have used correctly thousands of times before.
Until yesterday when I squeezed out a whopping blob of liquid body soap into my hand and absent-mindedly slapped it up on my scalp.
"Oh, that's not too bad," you are thinking (I know you are; don't deny it).
Well perhaps it wouldn't have been problematic if the liquid soap wasn't jam packed with a kajillion itsy-bitsy skin-exfoliating pumice granules.
Ever try to get a kajillion itsy-bitsy skin-exfoliating pumice granules out of your hair? It's not easy.
Or fun for that matter.
I doubt scalp-exfoliation will ever catch on. At least for non-baldy-type people.
* Sigh. *
I'm just thankful I was in the shower....
... and even more thankful that hubby didn't witness my Senior Moment.
Yes, mine are called Senior Moments.... because I am NOT an Old Fogie.
