Let's face it

Here I am on the eve of another birthday, a year away from Medicare and certainly ready for Weight Watchers. It's been a hard year but nothing's been nipped and tucked.

In the meantime, Jenn and her 35-something mommy bloggers are playing the self-portrait truthiness game and I took a peek. Here's how the game works: you dare a fellow blogger to take a candid photo, no make-up, let it all hang out, and post online. What I saw were a lot of beautiful faces who don't have a thing to hide. These are cute patooties but somehow they need to be reassured. Ah, youth. Not only are these women cute, they are bright and witty too.

I've decided to play their silly game and give some advice ...

No wonder you posted your nekkid face so willingly - you awake with cherry-kissed lips!

Did somebody say "birthday"? Happy happy.
