Then and now

When I went online about 10 years ago, a friend emailed this picture to me.  It was taken in high school, which was a few days years dozen years ago.  I can’t believe I ever looked so young!

Back then, I could eat anything I wanted and stay skinny.   Now, my body has run out of places to store everything, and I’ve developed “back fat.”

Back then, I drank to excess and was lucky enough never to be killed while driving under the influence.  Now, I rarely drink, and I drive like an old lady even when sober.

Back then, my complexion was dotted with a few cute freckles.  Now, I have Grand Canyon pores, and the cute freckles morphed into yukky age spots.

I occasionally think of those times as the good old days. Now I just feel old most days.  But at least I outgrew the big blue spot on my forehead.  🙂

    I hate back fat! It’s funny because when my daughter would come home from God knows where she would go “how do you know what we were doing?” I would say you can’t do anything my friend Rita and I haven’t done!! She never got away with anything. I wish we were as wise then as we are now.
