I watched Ashley Judd’s rebuttal to the jealousies and unreal speculations made in an attempt to explain away her plump cheeks. The finger pointers of the world had been picking apart reasons why. If they would just step back a second and take a look into the mirror-of-ten-minutes-ago-when-I –was-young, then, they would notice that time really doesn’t stand still, and sinus infections are real, and steroids will swell up your face.
Ashley, I am jealous at how beautiful you can look while fighting off an infection. This is a perfect time to wish you a Happy, 44th Birthday.
Early this week I read an article by Samantha Brick — who declared ‘people hated her for being beautiful.’ Her article brought about a barrage of tweets. Some mean, some funny, some wondering who she was.
The first thing that popped into my head was, Samantha, what a fantastic self-marketing article, and then I wondered if she was for real. If she really believed what she wrote…? We need to talk.
Samantha the reason why all those men hit on you is the numbers game. You are traipsing around the heart of a city where most male animals hunt. Males everywhere follow that motto: Try, try again! With the odds stacked in their favor, men keep the flirting, flowers and free drinks flowing because eventually someone will bite.
Every woman with a heartbeat has a story to tell. I remember one time in particular. I had walked into a hunting zone at a hardware store. I wasn’t dressed for hoisting lumbar or picking out paint, I was dressed with intense confidence and a lot of black leather. While walking up and down the aisles searching out a power tool, not what you’re thinking! A man made a decision to work on his odds and followed me around like a lap dog. Even as I told him to get lost, he tried to pass me his phone number. He seemed to enjoy my verbal rejections.
You made a comment, “I can’t wait for wrinkles and the grey hair,” well, sorry Samantha, but blondes only gets lighter with age. (I growled at my cousin when she told me that one.) And as long as you’re breathing, and, in a hunting zone, then you will be fair game, forever. Unless you tell them to buzz off instead of smiling and accepting their foreplay favors. Eventually, even the most ardent hunter will give up if you turn them down every time they pounce. Hats off to you Samantha you got people talking.
When, Ashley Judd took on the critics who seemed jealous of her gracefully, aging beauty, while ignoring the fact that a sinus infection and a round of steroids plumped up her face and erased her insignificant amount of wrinkles.
Did I just hear a stampede heading to doctors’ offices everywhere due to an outbreak of sinus infections? Really! Was it just me, or is that raccoon tap-dancing on my roof again?
Let me interject here, when I had to take steroids due to a bad back my whole body swelled up. I was allergic to the medicine. I couldn’t stuff my fat cheeks into my skinny jeans. I have had swollen sinuses, and yes, my face swelled and my wrinkles disappeared for a while.
Stopping our obsession with people watching isn’t going to happen, and I am sure that the marketing value is over the top. I just hope that it doesn’t spill over into bullying.
Has anyone noticed that Barbara Walters seems to be aging backwards? Now, I am in awe and really jealous!
