Menopause and Cat Calls?

If you think this sounds like an unlikely combination, join the club.  So did I.

I've never lied about my age and I have no plans to start now.  A lot of you already know that I'm 49 and not holding.  The big 5-0 is coming up in March.

So the other day, to get a little break from all the company we had, I thought that rather than drive to the corner store to pick up some milk, I'd walk the 5 or 6 blocks instead.

Out the door I went, black yoga pants, t-shirt, ponytail and crocs with my stylish SavvyCents Wallet tucked in my hand.  I had hardly gone the first block when this half-ton truck goes by with this guy hanging out the passenger side window whistling and gawking.  My first thought was "WTF?"  I looked over my shoulder "Nope, no chicks walking behind me."

Then before I rounded the corner to go up the side street to the shop, it happened again only a different guy!

I checked my pants, no holes, everything was safely tucked in where it was supposed to be so nothing was hanging out.

Then it hit me.

Without my glasses, I couldn't get a good look at the guys in the trucks but I bet if I had I would have seen two old geezers with big beer guts sporting toothless grins and I bet they both needed glasses!

Mystery Solved!

I'm 50, and I had an old guy ask me to go for a ride on his Harley. God bless that old man...made my day.

Heather said...

LOL!! When that happens, I'm always thinking...seriously you are THAT desperate! LOL!

I'm sure you was looking hot sporting that fabulous new wallet!

The Baby Store Plus said...

Too Funny! But give yourself more credit than that dear, my husband said (honestly) that a woman our age is way more attractive to him then a 'high-maintenance-ditz' strutting her stuff down the street to get attention.

You go girl!
