You rock my dear. That’s the whole point of this article, which another writer (see above) clearly did not choose to understand. I always find it so fascinating when folks take umbrage at a POV, and don’t either get the humor or the fun implied. People read things into my articles that are simply not there. We all have the right to a POV, dammit, but I guess I have difficulty when someone has the conceit to tell me what I mean in my own article. Oy. But that’s just me.

What I most love about what you write is how invasive others’s comments are about your looks. Honestly, where does anyone get off telling you to cut your hair? One of my closest friends recently had her hair chopped very short, and while it took me completely by surprise, it took ten years off her face. Hey- neither of us expected that, she looks terrific, but not in a MILLION years would I have said (nor did I think) that the longer style made her look older. None of my business.

I will reserve the right to have an opinion about folks who do not take into account how they look in public (kindly witness all Walmart customer photos), and note that that is only my opinion. Again, as with all things, doesn’t make me right. That’s their right to do what they want….so I either don’t shop at Walmart (that’s not hard) or I look the other way.

That said, m’lady, that doesn’t mean I don’t have the right to a take, nor does anyone else.

Thanks as always for your thoughtful and fun comments.
