Do you do that?
It happens to me all the time.
Sometimes I will start to think of someone and stop myself and sort of chat
"No. No. No." to myself.
(I have a lot of people that I'd rather not run into.)
Or you talk about an old movie and suddenly they are running it on Saturday afternoon TV.
The other day I was thinking about Nora Ephron.
I think she is very funny and I'm not easily amused.
Well... actually I am, just not by what seems to be popular nowadays.
I'm not into bathroom humor or men dressing up like Grandmas.As you might know, Nora Ephron wrote and directed a lot of movies and authored several books.
My favorites being "When Harry Met Sally" and "You've Got Mail".
Last year I checked out her book on CD - "I Feel Bad About My Neck", to listen to in my car for my drive to work.
I found myself smiling as I drove and I think I even laughed out loud once.
So the other day I looked in the mirror at work and I thought about Nora Ephron and her book.
I'm still eating healthy, I haven't cheated at all.
So I'm losing weight and the bathroom light is very bright there and I noticed my neck.
The skin isn't loose but it looks "different".
Kinda "crepe-y". Yeah, that's the word that sprung to my mind.
I marched up front and made the office girls look at my neck.
They didn't see a thing. They said I was crazy. That it looked fine.
Nope, my skin is old. I can see it looking less "springy".
I have always had my age guessed many years younger than I am.
People say that I don't have wrinkles and my standard line has always been -
"Oh! I'm a bag of wrinkles! It's just my FAT puffing it out!"
Ha ha haaaa.
Not too funny, if it is indeed true.
So there I was, tapped my finger against my throat, thinking about the BIG necklaces
and scarves in my future,And Nora Ephron.
and then today I see that she has passed away at the age of 71.
The world has lost a great talent and a very funny lady
and suddenly my neck doesn't seem to matter so much anymore.
