So, I'm sitting here in front of my computer thinking about what to post today. Staring out the window, sun streaming in, warming me, rabbits meandering around the yard. I smile. I turn back to my computer, and to my horror (!) I can't see the screen. All I see is my reflection in the monitor. Because of the way the sun is laughingly shining in the window, all it highlights is my neck!
WHAT THE HELL? WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO MY NECK??? Oh yes, this is very special lighting that emphysises every loose piece of skin, every wrinkle, every wattle on my skinny little neck. Yes friends, it's horrifying. I turn my head from side to side, keeping a close eye on what happens to the skin on that neck. I stretch my head back, thinking that it will all smooth out. No. That's not what happens. The skin just stretches into long lines of wrinkles. I guess I could try wearing one of those cute little neck scarves, but I would always be imagining that people around me are whispering to each other, knowingly, about what was underneath the scarf. Or, even worse, the skin is so loose, what if I tied the skin up in the knot??? Ouch!
Now, truth be told, I knew I was getting a turkey neck, and I wasn't happy about it. I just try to not notice it. The only attention it gets is a bit of moisturizer one or two times a day. But now that it's been spotlighted for me by some cruel enlightenment of mother nature through my window, I believe I'll close the curtain.
Be sure to come back tomorrow for: "Who the hell's hand is that?!?" No. There will be no photos. :)
