I went out with someone last night that I've known for several years, and one of the first things he said was - You haven't changed (aged) a bit! How is that possible? (not a direct quote, but pretty close, i think). It had been 4 years since we'd last seen each other in person.
That was a compliment... I think. I don't think I look like a freak or anything! LOL (i know he meant it as a compliment, and i took it as pleasant surprise that i didn't look old and decrepit)
When I told him I avoid the sun, I think he was surprised... he thought I just meant I work indoors. Nope. I use sunscreen, every single day (in my face lotion)... I even try to use real sunscreen if I'm going to be out for any real length of time. Or I stay in the shade. Or both. ;-)
Anyway, I don't do anything super special... and I do thank God that I have always had good skin. I try to take care of it as best I can.
On another note...while I had a good time last night, I'm still mourning the loss of what was just a few weeks ago. And I wish I didn't have to work today... I might even try to get out of here a bit early. Pensive today, and it won't likely go away on it's own.
