Telling it like it is.


Leaving a work appointment the other day, I stepped out of an office into a hallway while buttoning my coat. There was an elderly woman with a walker slowly making her way toward me.  I stopped, thinking she might be entering the office I just left and I would hold the door for her.  She got closer to me, stopped, looked me in the face and said:

"PUT A HAT ON!  IT'S COLD OUT THERE!"

I laughed as she shuffled past me, only to hear:

"PEOPLE ARE SO VAIN THESE DAYS!"

Well she told me, didn't she??  The funny thing is, she is right.  That's exactly why I don't wear a hat, it will mess up my hair.  Me thinks she spoke from experience and now she just doesn't give a damn.  What freedom!

  3. My Mother used to say things like that. When I was going out for the night she told me to make sure I wore a raincoat. Some nights there wasn't a cloud in the sky.

  4. Nope. I am not that vain. I wear hats - it is too cold sometimes for people with short hair...like me!

    1. My hair is too thin, it gets flat in a second. Only time I wear at hat is when I'm outside and don't have to be seen after I take the hat off!
