Okay, it is official! I am old! That 5 in front of my age has now been replaced with a 6. To me, age is just a number, a rather large one now. It’s the aches and pains, the inability to sleep, those are the things that make me feel old, not the number. I sat watching TV the night before with a hot pack on my shoulder and the a cold pack on my Achilles.
I told my sister yesterday that I thought Dad was old when he turned 60. Now I know he was!
All that said, I do still find ways to feel young. A bikini on the beach. Or on this day, my second improv class!
As a means of making my evening interesting, you can see I wore my Happy Birthday tiara. I wore it all night and it did indeed make my evening interesting! My outfit was cute, casual and so comfortable!
Before class, I grabbed dinner and a few Happy Hour special margaritas in a crowded restaurant. Me, seated like any other woman at the bar, eating.
Then class started and I had another delightful time! No real stories here, just me honing my “craft” with my other classmates.
Then it got interesting as I did not want to evening to end just yet. I stopped at another restaurant and sat at a fairly empty bar. The bartender wished me a Happy Birthday (my tiara at work!) and I ordered a glass of wine. She then brought me a complementary glass of champagne as a birthday gift! When I asked for the check is said $0.00. Now I had to protest. Since I carry little to no cash, I had no way of tipping her, so she charged me $1 for wine. I tipped her what I would have paid for the wine with a tip. As I stand up, I notice a woman at the end of the bar. I walk over to say hello.
Well, long story short, after us girls gabbing for about an hour, I left another place where I entered knowing no one with two very good friends and a wonderful experience of love and acceptance! July 7, 2021, a great day!
