Deep Thoughts,  Feeling Crotchety

Story of My Life

My story “Hot Enough For Ya?” is up at Lipstick. It has nothing to do with the temperature.  The tagline describes my situation well: Life isn’t all a bed of roses when you marry a stud muffin.

    Hysterical. I loved it and now I’m even more jealous of you. Except for those chin hairs. Those you can keep.

    Oooh, that is my dad. In high school, a friend told me that she didn’t realize I had an older brother when she saw us working in the yard together. He would have been mid-40s at the time.

    Tootsie’s last blog post..Okay, so I got bored

    Incredible article. Thanks for the link. You really are an incredible writer. As for you two being a mismatched couple, I think you hold your own just fine.

    I hear ya! My husband is not only 6 years younger than I am, but has not aged at all in the 11 years that we’ve been married. He, in fact, is alternately carded buying beer or mistaken for Dr. Mc Dreamy. I, on the other hand, look every day of my nearly 40 years. It’s nice to have a good looking husband, but it would be nice if he could at least appear to be over 30!

    Too funny Anne!! I hate to write this, but I’m part of the looks younger crowd. Both my Mom-who is 55, but looks 40- and my Grandmother-who is 80, but looks 60-have great genes. I still get carded when I buy alcohol 🙂

    What a great article! I have been enjoying your writing for about 2 yrs now. I lived in Vestavia for many years before moving to Richmond. When I read your articles, it makes the think of “home.” Thank you!

    Awesome article, Anne! And what is it about men and their bowel regularity? Completely unfair, that’s what it is. We girls have enough to deal with. Hmmph….
