Top o’ the world!

by Jessie K on November 12, 2012

Last night I met a bunch of friends in town for a drink. Afterward, one of the ladies pulled me aside and said, “Are you okay? When you came in you looked so tired and so sad.”

Naturally, it almost goes without saying I was in a great mood and feeling grand. I thought I’d entered the restaurant looking smashing.  Yet I felt compelled to say something to my friend to spare her from thinking I am a mountain of tears. “Oh no,” I said.  “It’s just that I’ve been eating a lot of salt lately and drinking heavily…” (which is kind of the truth) …”My face is just really puffy.”

Man, I love getting older — you think you look like you’re on top of the world while the world thinks you look like you got hit by a bus.
