17 Again

Dear Body:

We're 28 now. I've noticed you've started producing a lot of gray hair. I've also noticed you are still pretty gung ho about the zit thing. I demand you choose one or the other. Zits or Gray hair. Not both. Seriously.

Yours in eternal puberty,

Kristi

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I am....ummm...older than 28 and it just gets worse. When you get into your ?0s the zits are still coming strong, you don't need highlights because the gray takes care of that for you, and all those times you laughed and smiled? Well, lets just say the evidence stays on your face. Oh, and your children roll their eyes at you...a lot!

If by gray you don't mean bright white, then I would say enjoy it while it lasts. :)

Hypothetically speaking, of course.

I was hoping to be done with zits by my mid-20's as well. Wretched things. But hey, look at the bright side. You have nice teeth!

p.s. Happy Birthday!

You're funny. Why have we still not gotten together? We should probably wait until after Christmas, but then it's on.

You are hilarious, Kristi. Somebody told me today that the peak of a woman's beauty is at age 29 and it's downhill from there. Joy.

ditto, well at least with the zits, seriously, can they just go away, i am not 14, it is even more embarrassing at this age i think

If Emily is right - oh shiz. I've only got 1.5 years left!!!??? I really think that can't be right- b/c I must be on the downhill slope already. I feel old these days....

And OH. MY. CRAPPOLA! I almost posted nearly the exactly thing on FB today. I have a painful zit the size of Texas between the eyes. I want to die - A) b/c it hurts badly. Very Badly. Everytime my hand brushes even the vicinity on my face, I yelp. And B) Obviously, it's humiliating. SO FREAKIN' RED and SWOLLEN! No amount of cover up is going to take that away. It's looking borderline Klingon.... What's wrong with me!!???? AGHH!!!!
