Line - Heads or Tails



The theme for today's Heads or Tails is LINE. This could be very similar to "waiting" which I wrote about last week, but something else keeps coming into my mind.


This line from the lyrics of Dream On (Aerosmith) constantly pops in my head as I think about my own lines.


"Everytime that I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face gettin' clearer"


Yes, I'm over 40, and the lines in my face are much more noticeable. It's not so bad, really, thanks to my parents who gave me decent genes in the skin department, but still...


My husband and I drove to Louisiana a couple of years ago to go to one of the casinos there, and we were having a conversation with one of the security guards. The subject of when to card and when not to card people came up, and he said something along these lines: "I could tell when you smiled." (meaning that the lines around my eyes made it obvious that I was well over the age limit) I really don't think he meant it as insulting as it sounds now, and he's right, but he didn't need to point that out! My husband thought it was about the dumbest thing you could say to a woman. Oh well. I'm over it.


Happy Heads or Tails everyone! Visit the homepage to see more, and don't forget to visit Skittle's Place.

P. S. Thanks, Penelope Anne, for the above graphic.
P. S. S. If I'd known how awful the picture below was going to look, I wouldn't have posted this video, but I had to have this song!

Turn up the volume and enjoy!

Good line!

Now that is a crazy comment for anyone to make.
Maybe he meant that you smiled and those underage don't, they want to look serious but if they open their mouths, they may have braces which is a tell tale sign, they are underage.

Yep . . . those lines get even clearer with new reading glasses. (I hate the new glasses! I can see the whole road map on my face now.)

That was a pretty dumb comment. But as long as your over it!

I keep trying to consider my lines "badges of courage and a life well lived" but it isn't quite working.

Fun Day

By the time you are my age (61) the lines are a lot clearer. Make sure they are laugh lines as your lines will tell everyone about your character. If you have them surgically removed all it will tell people is that you are vain, self centered and not real. Learn to love the lines but still look after your skin. Thanks for coming over to my place.

I'm with Vic Grace on this one. At 63 I've got LOTS of lines in my face and methinks they reveal my CHARACTER! Thanks for dropping by my HoTs at Small Reflections.
Hugs and blessings,

This song was one of my ring tones for a long time! Fabulous choice! As for the lines on my own face ... I like 'em! They represent laughter & that's a good thing! Dream until your dreams come true!
