Spackled crow's feet

This weekend I had an unexpected visit from a friend I hadn't seen in about fifteen years. That's long enough for appearances to change a fair amount, but when we met and hugged she said, "You haven't changed very much! I want to know about the spackle you use."

I've definitely got my wrinkles, but it's probably true that she's wrinklier than I am, which is no doubt a reflection of the fact that she's worked outdoors a lot more than I have over the years, a lot of it in sunny Southern California. She told me that the spackle line was something she once heard in a comedy routine, but I've been laughing ever since she said it. Somebody needs to start up a cosmetic line called Spackle pronto.

It'd help if you didn't use a photo taken when you were 23...

When I was 23 I looked like a fetus.

Age accerates so quickly! I thought time was supposed to go slower when we get older, but aging happens so quickly.

Yeah, I think we've gotten to the age where we're catching up with the aging that's been going on all along, but we were in denial. I feel as though I've had more health issues in the past three or four years than I had in the whole rest of my life.

I'm right there with you. Dorian Gray Syndrome? Except we're nice!

I'm at least occasionally naughty, in a decrepit sort of way.
