This Old House
I got my car insurance renewal paperwork in the mail the other day, and it said I qualify for a new discount because I have 25 years of driving experience.
I flipped the letter around to make certain it really was addressed to me.
Then I got on the 10key just to be extra sure.
41-25 = 16
I am too young to have 25 years experience doing anything. I'm not even really an adult yet.
I am not usually one to be hung up on age, and mostly its not something I think about. And 41 really is still young.
But sometimes I am reminded in ways I'd rather not be reminded. Like the other day I went to get my eyebrows waxed. And I am like most of you bike racer types, getting my eyebrows waxed is not high on the priority list and its probably been a few years since the last one.
So I am laying on the table and the estetician is putting the wax on (this is the part before the part that hurts). I notice that she is also putting the wax waaaay up on my forehead. Not just my brow, but my forehead. Maybe she's thorough, I think. Or maybe....maybe I have brows on my forehead.
I asked myself out loud "since when did my eyebrows start growing out of my forehead?" And the estetician sweetly responds that its normal for that to happen as we age.
So there's that. Brittle bones and eyebrows on our foreheads.
