Lying About Your Age-Here’s How You Should Do It

“So this will be your 25th birthday,” a new acquaintance joked recently when he heard of my upcoming birthday.   There was that assumption again. When people — particularly women — get to a certain age, we’re supposed to lie about our age.     Certainly some people sign up for the game.   My own mother, born in 1936, still celebrates her 29th birthday.

Social Media Peer Pressure: I’m Gagging. The Thing I’ll Say That I Bet You’re Thinking

I’m slow. Hopelessly behind. Out of the loop. How about that for some fine negative catty self-talk? I figure it’s not catty, if it’s true. Simply reporting. I don’t have to go far to confirm and reinforce my theory.  It’s a close as my computer. My computer, where years ago I joined Facebook. Facebook, where I post pictures of my life, links that I love, stay connected with “friends,” most of whom I don’t really know. Sounds like a huge

Did you see The Photo? Jaws are dropping around the world! It’s a supposedly unaltered photo of Supermodel Cindy Crawford wearing her bra and panties. “Unaltered” as in no Photoshop enhancement to add shading or erase of imperfections.

One, I was staring at body I’d love to have.  “This is without retouching?” I marveled doing the math wondering how many zillions of stomach crunches it takes
