The glass half-full philosophy kind of thing.
I'm working to apply that to all aspects of my life.
Yesterday was my birthday...and even though I didn't get a new Grandson (darn those kids anyway!), I came to an important realization.
My important self discover was about age spots.
Those brown patches that seem to pop up in new places every day...
You don't have any?
You don't? Really?
Okay...well then... ummm...neither do I.
I am totally and complete age spot-less but I have this ... ummm... FRIEND... yeah, that's it... I have this FRIEND with lots and lots of age spots...
...because I think my ... ummm... FRIEND... used to lay out in the sun for hours and hours with her sister and cover herself in Johnson's Baby oil and Hawaiian Tropics deep tanning oil with no sunscreen...
Hey...don't judge ME...it was my ummm... FRIEND ... that did this.
Since, oddly, it was my FRIEND'S birthday yesterday, too, I told her she was thinking about the whole age spot thing WRONG.
I told her the trick to age spots was to buy some Johnson's Baby oil and Hawaiian Tropics deep tanning oil with no sunscreen...
...and to find a secluded, non-viewable-by-living-eyes area of her backyard and to lay out in the sun for hours and hours each day.
Then she would get new age spots AND they would all blend together and it would just look like she had a great tan and...
I can't do this.
I can't lie like this.
It's me. Me with the darned age spots.
None of my friends have age spots. Really.
But I do.
So I'm thinking the laying out in the sun thing might work.
If I get new age spots AND if they fill in around the old age spots, I will just look radiant and tan.
Radiant and tan and age spot-less.
It's really applying the glass half-full philosophy kind of thing to age spots.
And about seeing the positive side of things.
I may not be blogging much for awhile. I'll be laying out for 4 or 5 hours a day trying to even out my skin.
I just hope it's not too uncomfortable out there when I have a hot flash.
