I was an auctioneer this evening. That’s a skill I picked up along the way–part of my toolkit. I was helping out with the Milford Chamber of Commerce’s charity golf outing. This event funds scholarships an a few small grants.
Milford’s event was held in Stratford. Isn’t that like cheating on your spouse? Isn’t Milford’s Chamber supposed to encourage business in Milford. I didn’t ask, but I couldn’t have been the only one thinking that.
Bic was a major sponsor. Bic’s American operations are based in Milford. It’s nice when a big corporation is a good local citizen.
I had a few people tell me I’d visited their elementary school years ago. These were grownups talking. That’s about the most depressing thing I can hear.
I’ve gotten to the point when people tell me I look young for my age I get internally upset. Looking young doesn’t take anything off the calendar.
From People Magazine: ON GLORIA STEINEMS 50TH birthday, somebody had the nerve to tell her that she looked good for her age. “This is what 50 looks like,” was the feminist’s oft-quoted response.
I’m not sure why, but I’m thinking about age a lot nowadays. Contrary to my assumption at 16 there’s nothing good in getting older!
I’m going to stop before I get too depressed.
