Over the last several months... I have been noticing a trend. Many of the women Active Rainers... and some of the guys, as well, have been "updating" their photos on their Personal Profiles.
Ya see... many of their previous photos... since our Community Pages were "improved" <dorky smile> by Active Rain... many of the previous photos have turned into what have been comically referred to as "balloon heads" or by some... as photos looking like the "Blue Man Group."
Wanting to try and be "ahead of the curve"... I have gone through great personal expense... and have come up with a brand new photo of myself. Many of those not included in my readers, or my subscribers, or on my "Associates" list might say that the above photo is a major improvement.
Regardless of varying opinions on that... I seem to have another problem. Ya see... some of us women... as we grow older... can end up with small "touches" of facial hair. In most cases, it is most apparent on the upper lip. Unfortunately, I seem to be struggling with having a tad more facial hair than that.
Luckily, though, there have been some bright spots to this unfortunate aspect of growing old. First of all, with the upcoming winter and it's cold weather and icy winds, I will NOT be subject to a frostbitten nose. Secondly, I think I can save more than a tad... on not having to buy lip balm... again, due to cracked lips from the icy winds that come in from the north.
And... what a windfall this is! My hairdresser has graciously consented to NOT charge me double for my weekly hair-do's. Whew... that would have made a definite dent in my winter budget.
But still... who needs all this facial hair ? Already I am starting to get some pretty funny looks when I go out and about, or on a listing. Luckily, as far as those "funny looks" are concerned... I can't SEE most of them... cuz of all that hair in my eyes.
So... in a pleading call for help from my Active Rain Wimmin Friends... ummm... errr... what do I do now ? Any suggestions ? Now... remember... be nice, now.
