I can't keep up.

Tsuite ikemasen.

So the other day, I was working with my brilliant, cute, sweet, 20 something co-worker and noticed she had a red mark on her lovely youthful leg.

Then, I noticed a blue mark on her other lovely youthful leg.

Then, I realized there were a lot of red and blue marks, too many to count, on both her legs.

I took a breath as to ask her which of the two Karate black belts in our department I should send after the person who did this to her, but I noticed that the marks had awfully clear margins to be bruises.

Then, I noticed they were little hearts.

She was wearing patterned hose.

I really feel old sometimes.

Yesterday in the train I saw a young lady wearing a teal blue dress.... and ORANGE Tights!! All I could think of was that she was a bit late for Halloween! :-)

Tia, I figure they are no worse off than when I was sporting upward curled bangs and high rise jeans.

Thank you, Sheri, now I really feel old! :P

So does what this really mean is that you need your prescription changed?

Myself, I am going to the eye doctor for the first time in five years next week.

Happy Birthday!

No, my glasses are only about a year and a half old, from shortly before I got pregnant with the Pumpkin Prince. I learned long ago from work that it's not about visual acuity but knowledge and recognition.

You are many years younger than I am, so you are not allowed to feel old, Ayako!
