If it hurts, it must be morning

SOME THINGS YOU MAY WANT TO THINK ABOUT BEFORE YOU GET OLD:

  • are you going to go for fashionable or practical?
  • does the physical outrank the emotional?
  • does the emotional outrank everything you thought you knew about normal?
  • what are you going to do with the bikes, in-line skates, thigh-high boots and blue eyeliner?
  • does hair really matter?
  • do you love dance more than you crave dignity?
  • are you ready for sales assistants to call you "dear"?
  • can you bear it if your fingertips get broader than the keys on your smart phone?
  • if you wake up at 3 a.m., do you make coffee because it's so early or pour wine because it's so late?
  • are Birkenstocks really a tool of the devil?
  • what if you can't dye your eyebrows to match your new haircolour?
  • is swooshy the new sexy?
Oh, the list could go on, but there's only so much pain I can handle at once...
