You know how there are creams and stuff to use on skin to "take years off your age"? Well, guess what? I just found something to "take years off your age" that is supposed to be used on hair. And, this has triggered a rant that has been brewing for some time.
What is wrong with aging? It's something that is normal and natural. Why are people in our society so afraid of growing old? Why is it wrong to mention that someone is getting middle aged or elderly, when it's perfectly acceptable to mention that someone is in their twenties?
When I once mentioned someone's age (their age started with a four, if I remember correctly), why did someone say "Ew, and you kiss your mom with the mouth that said that number?" Like I had just said something that should never be said.
Why? Really, what's wrong with getting a few wrinkles and gray hairs? As my mom says, "I earned each of these gray hairs, and I'm proud of them." Why can't more people have that attitude, rather than fearing the day the wrinkles begin to appear?
Why do some people celebrate their thirtieth birthday for ten years straight, rather than acknowledging that they're growing a year older each year?
What's wrong with growing older? Nothing. That's right, nothing is wrong with aging.
Ok, my rant is over. For now.
