I believe there must be a full moon somewhere in the near future. Should anyone who might read this be up on the phases of the moon, DO NOT correct that statement!
What I mean, something strange is going on. Now, yesterday, I admit, I looked absolutely adorable (according to me, of course). I made a blog post to that effect and then promptly deleted it. I had worn a black velour shirt, faded blue jeans and 3″ black heeled boots. I added a little eye liner, mascara and lipstick. Nothing fancy, but fancier than I normally dress for work.
I was talking to someone, not work-affiliated, who was in his mid-30s. He actually told me, you look “hot”. Me? I had to look around a quick second to make sure he was actually looking at me. That got a bit of a laugh.
Today I was speaking with one of my employees and he’s in his 60s. He was just doing a check in as he’s out on leave. We have a very free office and people just say what they are thinking here. He was talking about watching reruns and how the show aired in 1975. I love to chime in on those moments and say things like, “I was 4”. He couldn’t believe it. Apparently, he thought I was much younger than I am. According to him, I have aged very well. It cracked me up. I couldn’t help but laugh.
I am a simple mother of 5 kids; ok so most of them are adults now. I don’t have a model’s figure. I swear like a drunken sailor turned trucker, I’m overly opinionated and I’m not afraid to tell people what I think of them. That being said, I’m happy with who I am. It’s taken me a long time to get to the point where I can say that.
So, the fact two different men, in two very different age groups, offered compliments I never expected to hear, definitely has given me a bit of an ego boost and I sure as hell got in a WOOT! WOOT!
