It's funny (not really) when you start to realize that you are changing, as you get older. I woke up coughing at 5am, and peed my underpants, down my legs on the way to the toilet. (I DO MY KEGALS TOO!) I didn't pee the bed though! My Knees crack and grind when I go up/down stairs. Hair grows where it shouldn't, but it's not grey! My breasts have fallen several inches in the past few years, nothing a good bra doesn't hide, but I have to freaking live in a bra and that's no fun! I don't get carded often at the bar anymore, but I am carded for cigarettes from time to time! Ego boost!
Your tastes change too. I never use to like salsa, now I love it. Wouldn't touch guacamole, now, I think it's pretty damn good! Yogurt? No thanks....Now a staple in my frigidare. The latest sign of my aging is my choice in men. I still love the usual hotties, but now I'm takign a liking to guys like...Mike Rowe from dirty jobs. Who, let's face it ladies, he's hot! The past couple of shows, he's been scruffy, and I love me nothing more than a scruffy looking man. A dirty, sweaty, using your hands, man! Yum!
I remember asking my mom once if your taste changed when you got older, because she was doing the online dating thing, sending me pics of old men thinking they were cute! She told me that you still have an eye for attractive men, but what you want for yourself changes. Good thing. Otherwise, I guess I'd still be lusting after 14 year old boys. But I think this might be something that only changes in women. Men, always lust for 14 year old girls. (men would never admit this, so I'll put it this way, they lust after 18 year old girls, that look 14.) I guess it's fabulous that I'm growing up. And becoming more mature. And, just to show that I'm not totally washed up, I still think Ty Pennington, Edwin McCain, Johnny Depp, and Orlando Bloom are hot.
