How do you know when you’re too old for something? I mean, just because I’m fortyish doesn’t mean I don’t still like the things I liked when I was younger. I blogged before about my obsession with Steven Tyler feathers for my hair. Is it appropriate for a fortyish mother of three to have Steven Tyler feathers in her hair?
Doesn’t really matter – I’m over the feathers now anyway. I read an article about them and they talked about the different birds the feathers came from and it kinda grossed me out. But, here’s something I really need to have in my hair – I first admired them on Adrienne on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and now my friend Katie has them and even though I have yet to see them in her hair, I know that I have got to get bling strings in my hair!
But, am I too old? I don’t feel too old! I feel like I need bling strings! Of course I would get them to match my hair color – no blue or red for me. But, as I wrote this blog post, I did a Google Image search so I could insert a photo for you to see, in case you weren’t familiar with bling strings. Turns out, most of the photos are of children, celebrities or hookers. Hmmm….
Maybe that’s how you know when you’re too old.
The other day I drove by the flea market. When I saw it, I remembered that a friend recently told me she worked at one with her parents when she was little. I couldn’t think of who it was that told me though. I remembered we were at dinner, and that another friend said that her mother knew everyone at the flea market. For the life of me, I couldn’t remember which friend it was. The more I tried to remember which friend it was, the more I remembered about the dinner. We were out for dinner, at a round table…then it came to me – It wasn’t one of my friends! It was one of The Real Housewives of New York!
How does that happen? How do we become so involved in these “reality” shows that they cross over in our minds and appear to actually be part of our reality?
My friend Katie from www.whosyourmommyblog.com recently shared her Reality TV obsession and I totally could relate – I’m actually the friend who tells her to hurry and catch up on the “Housewives” so we can talk about it!
