I seriously make fun of myself for acting like an old lady multiple times a day. Maybe this is a problem.
Why am I tired? Oh because I’m a 95-year-old lady and I only got 7.5 hours of sleep last night. You know they require 8-9 right?
Why can’t I go out on Friday or Saturday? Because I’m a 95-year-old lady who might be painting furniture or teaching myself to sew, but most likely I’m going to bed at 9:30.
Why won’t I have more than two drinks? Because I’m a 95-year-old lady who already gets headaches multiple times a week and don’t want to self-impose another (but I promise you that between the ages of 17 and 22 I had enough hangovers to last me a lifetime).
A couple weeks ago when I was hanging out with my Little (I volunteer with BBBS), I bought her some stickers and asked what she would put them on. She said, “Everything.” So I asked if she was going to put them on her trapper keeper. She looked at me funny and said, “Is that the name of a scary movie or something? The Trapper Keeper…dun dun dunnnnn…” After I explained she says, “Um…I’m pretty sure no one knows what a trapper keeper is anymore.”
Then I had to explain to her that I am only 24 years old. That is not old. She is not hanging out with a 95-year-old lady despite my seemingly old lady hobbies and habits.
I mean really, do old ladies take snapchats of themselves at the beach to ignore the realities of life?
What really got me thinking about this is that I’m trying to find places to advertise my blog so that we can grow a leeeeeetle bigger. So I follow all these girls (I mean their blogs…not that I’m a stalker) around my age, and chose one to advertise with. When Passionfruit asked me to explain my blog, I mentioned my 95-year-old lady habits. But then I figured that maybe that wouldn’t sell my blog so well to ladies that are actually my age, so I decided to add, “I’m actually not a 95-year-old lady, so I also blog about my life!”
I’m sure that was convincing, right?
Excuse me while I go learn to quilt. Actually a couple of my friends really are learning to quilt and I really want to, too. But that is neither here nor there. What are your old lady habits?
