When I was younger, I’d drive down the street and see some old lady putting out the trash or raking leaves in an tacky housedress or baggy pants, mismatched socks, scarf on her head, and say to myself, “Geez, doesn’t she realize what she looks like?” Sometimes I’d just feel sorry for the old bird, figuring no one ever sees her anyway…
Today I became her.
Just took the big recycle can out to the curb wearing a baggy housedress and woolly Alpine-patterned knee socks (hey, my feet get cold, even in the summertime), and crocs. A car drove by as I was doing it and I had this weird flashback/then & now sensation.
What have you surprised yourself by turning in to?
