Desperate enough to visit my friend the doctor. I think I would have been up for a shot of something if he had offered, which if you truly knew me, you would know that, that says a lot. (I hate shots or needles of any kind.) He didn't offer but I did come home with a pile of prescriptions that shot me with relief the last time the allergies flared up. He said in a few days I should start feeling better....HELLO!!! Do I really have to wait a few days?
Anyway, I said all of that to let family and friends know that hopefully I am on the mend. Thanks for the kind thoughts and prayers. Your "walking allergy time bomb" appreciates the love...
Now, I know you are wondering about the title to my post and what exactly I meant. I could have been, but believe it or not I was not referring to anything green that might be coming out of the nose or throat area at this time. (Sorry, not trying to be gross!) Actually I was referring to the fact that, while I have the red nose, eyes, everything and feel totally cruddy, I was in the Walmart line, paying for my pile of prescriptions when I saw this:
Is Christie Brinkley really 55 years old? She is like over 15 years older than me!!! And she looks like that?!!! Don't even try to tell me about the airbrush think, 'cause I'm thinking if you take the airbrush stuff away she is still looking great for 55! Yep! I had to ask for forgiveness in my heart as I left the Walmart parking lot. The green envy monster had visited me for a moment. I had to send him packing real fast too, 'cause feeling like I was already feeling... I might have had to make a u-turn and go back to the doc for something for depression. I wasn't feeling the love at that moment...
Then I read the other headline on the magazine. Do you see it? The one that says "How to make peace with your flaws." I'm laughing. Very funny. I have to hand it to the magazine people. They know how to grab a person whose heart hit the floor in self pity after looking at our friend Christie. I can hear them now..."Let's put in a self help page to help all those sad people who feel yucky about themselves because they are sick and just saw a picture of the GORGEOUS model on the cover. Then add another story on how to make your skin look younger and how to have your best body at any age and some sad chick is going to fall for it all and buy the magazine."
Hello. My name is SAD CHICK.
Yep. Weak moment. I paid $2.49 so I can look at Christie Brinkley's picture and boost my self esteem daily. Did I tell you I was sick? Clearly not thinking straight. As for the "flaws" article...I will have to get back to you on that one. Maybe one of these days I'll read it for a good laugh.
I guess in the meantime I will try to hold on to Proverbs 31:30.
"Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord, is to be praised."
