... and any other kooky thing that I wouldn't be caught dead in right now because, hey, at that age it's cute!
My mom's Aunt Julie (my grandma's older sister) came into town over the weekend to visit. And wouldn't you know it, she had on bright yellow crocs. She even had to point out that they were real crocs and not some cheap imitation. lol! Those shoes with her darling old-lady haircut and surprisingly energetic personality were just adorable!
So I've decided that when I am old I will wear authentic in-the-moment pieces and will joyfully choose the most obscene colors... knowing full well that, being old, is the only reason I can get away with it. I will take advantage of the things my age has to offer, like 10% off Tuesdays at Ross. I will move to Hollywood because I won't be subject to the pressure's of looking a certain way and will tell them I want to be in a movie as "Old Lady Who Hits Man With Purse". And maybe will progress to "Spunky Grandma". I will carry a can of soup in my enormous bag just in case I ever do have to really hit a man with it. I will teach my grandkids about life and the secrets of happiness. I will try to fix up my great-nieces with wonderful "young" men I know. And I'll do it all while wearing my bright yellow crocs (or whatever ugly shoe they create that is popular in 50 years).
