Pepe, you missed two key points: first, I did indeed mention several of those items:
Now I do. And while the harsh fluorescent light in the store window is going to absolutely, positively show my aging face, the slight sagging of skin on the inside of my calves
I also thought about my dentures (yes, and?) my wrinkles (yes, and?) and all the proof positive that I am indeed barking at 70.
Oh, and the fact that I have close to four THOUSAND Medium articles that poke fun at my stupid shit. This wasn’t that kind of article. This was an article focusing on older women/men/people who see everything that’s WRONG with them and reframing it.
I can’t put my finger on it but it usually has something to do with the need to tear someone down if they DARE to own their own geography.
I think it has something to do with ego. Best of luck out there.
