Does it ever surprise you to look in the mirror and see that you’re not ‘young’ anymore?
I know that sounds weird, but let me explain.
I couldn’t find my regular brand shampoo last time I went shopping (stay with me here, it’s pertinent!) So I bought a different one.
I used it for the first time this morning and the fragrance was exactly like a brand I used in my twenties.
It was a nice little treat for my olfactory senses.
I loved that shampoo so much I used to have the pharmacy guy buy it by the case.
But life moves on and they changed the formula or something, so I stopped buying it.
But the funny thing was…….when I stepped out of the shower and was toweling my hair I glanced in the mirror and saw myself as I am now….. and I was, for a nano-second, taken aback that I didn’t see my thin, pretty, twenty two year old self reflected back at me!
Okay, so I’m delusional, you’re surprised?
