One thing I have learned with this aging lark is that aging isn’t fun at all. There are things like the memory going. You go into a room and just totally forget what you’re there for. It’s ridiculous, a grown full functional adult that has managed to get this far in life and you stand there with absolutely no clue what it was you wanted. I get this all the time. The name of the simplest things can totally escape me till I mime actions. The other day I was talking with a friend about an upcoming holiday and could I remember what those things in the sky were called? Nope, cue arm flapping actions. Names? I’ve totally given up on those because trying to talk about a film is full of ‘has thingy-me-bob in it’, ‘you know he was in that other film called, oh wait I can’t remember that one’. Sound familiar? Did I mention the memory going?
Some of the aging we can use hacks to get around. Tummy not as trim as you would like? (like has it ever been, let’s get real?) No problem, just stuff it into some Spanx. Bingo wings playing their own games on their own? No worries, you can start your love affair for a good cardi now. Grey hairs twinkling their little hearts out when you look in the mirror? No problem, grab the hair dye and dye your hair for roughly the next 30 years.
But wait, it’s the grey hair bit that has me groaning. 30 years? Really, there must be more to life than being a slave to the hair dye every 6 weeks. Is there a better option to dying the grey away, could we embrace it instead? First, there is the cost of it all (over £1,000 for 30 years and that’s working it on the cheap stuff) but the other thing I am wondering is if its the best look teamed with the wrinkles.
We cant get rid of the wrinkles, well not unless you’re rich, so does an older face with young looking hair look off compared to natural hair colour, all be it grey, teamed with matching face?
