I've never really felt old until yesterday.

Not when the gray hairs started appearing, not when I started wearing bifocals, not when I started having some new aches and pains...nope, I just kept on going.

Then yesterday the cute guy at work asked me if I had a single daughter, and I thought, "What am I, chopped liver?" (and the fact that I thought that -- old!). Well, apparently, yes, I am chopped liver.

Old chopped liver.

Too many bad things happened yesterday for it to really sink in, but tonight I came home and looked in my Joan Rivers book on plastic surgery, "Men Are Stupid, and They Like Big Boobs," and went straight to the chapter on face lifts. And after reading it, I thought, okay, I'm not THAT old. Thanks, Joan!

Exactly! He has no idea that I AM a single daughter!

I'm putting off that facelift for another few years :)

Oh, rude! That would've hurt my feelings a lot. I'm sure you look fine. (By the way, just today I saw a photo of Meredith Baxter, who was born in '47, so is only 4 years older than I am -- and she looked like an old leather handbag. Yikes. I feel a little better about myself tonight!)

I love men more than is probably healthy, but they can be idiots about their libidos.

LOL! Well, to be fair, he is probably half my age :)

This place I'm working now is a hotbed of reproduction. I've never felt so out of step being single and childless as I have here. Most of my co-workers had children (yes, plural) when they were in their teens. Oy!

You gave me such a laugh when I read your post this morning! Sorry, not laughing at you - laughing WITH you. And totally identify.

LOL! Glad I gave you laugh. I'm feeling much better now! Joan Rivers is my spirit animal.
