A Sign of Age

It is amazing to me how people will spend millions of dollars trying to avoid looking their age. The classic is the AARP magazine that always has a picture of some 70 years old actress that looks like she just graduated from high school. Becoming old is a full time job and I want to be paid for it. Who would know about all the things I have done and suffered if I looked like I was seventeen years old? If anyone comes along and says, my but you look just like you did twenty years ago, they are lying. Being old is being invisible. When I am in a social gathering, no one under the age of forty or so will even notice that I am alive. 99 out of 100 younger people will walk right by me as if I wasn't there. Young women now open the door for me! It was time to feature a photo of something really old and beautiful.
