What is up with dirty old MEN?
OK so I am at Wal-Mart with my 9 YEAR OLD SON mind you, and this OLD MAN comes up to me and says............let me just preface this by saying that I am all for sexual harassment especially for people over 40. We need the attention in our mid-life stage and it is welcomed ALMOST always. I have been sexually harassed before. Of course when I was much younger but let's just say it is fewer and farther between nowadays........which is FINE !! I don't count all the wrinkles and step on the scale regularly, though I probably should, I gauge myself by my clothes and how they feel. I fluctuate weight like a FRIGGIN hot air balloon and it is fine with me as long as I can ZIP UP MY PANTS!! I mention this because I don't think I am a HOTTY! I am NOT trying to be! I suppose I could be if I wanted to, but I don't have time to be so self-obsessed. That is why we have movie stars and models they can be the HOTTIES! I am fine just being an average semi-cute mom with an over active mouth. That is who I am and I like me this way. So back to my story. Jake was in the car and I was loading the groceries into the trunk and this OLD man comes up to me and says "hey tell your hairdresser that dumb looks great on you" and I said "excuse me?" and he said it again "tell your hairdresser that dumb looks great on you" I shook my head and said "are you saying I am dumb?" and he said "No but your hair is blond, get it" and I laughed and said "oh OK as long as the "dumb" is a sort of compliment then I guess that's fine" and he said "well I can't compliment what I wanted to or you would sue me" and he got in his car and left. I have been shaking my head ever since. Am I so old that old men think I am THEIR age? Did he think he was MY AGE? I don't think I am flattered nor do I feel violated I am just going "HUH?" But I guess at my age I should just take even the most ridiculous compliment or all the DIRTY OLD MAN LUST I can get, because I am STILL not used to the "ma'am" treatment at the grocery store. I still need the "babe" treatment. I guess the only thing left to say is "Yep, I still got it!" At least for the seniors!!!
