Soooo….As I’m sure anyone who reads my blog, even sporadically, realizes my “elephant in the room”…that elephant being my many chins. I say it’s like an elephant in the room because everyone sees it, but nobody wants to say anything…Trust me, I’ve dealt with it for a looooooong time…On the rare occasion when I DO get out of my uniform and into some “big girl” clothes, I still cannot feel like a “hot mama” with all this skin hanging from my chin..It’s the Ross curse. Our entire family had it..and as I got older, it got worse…I tried to tie it up in a bow..
…Nope, that wasn’t catching it…I would have to get many bows to match my many outfits…
It was getting so large that I felt my chin skin entered the room before I did…swaying to and fro like a willow in the wind…Speaking of wind, I do believe I could have hoisted those chin skins on a mast and set sail!
…I was beginning to understand the fascination with the Shar Pei dogs…What do they hide in those wrinkles?? When they shake, do they almost knock themselves off their feet?
I feel your pain, sistas…..or brothas…kinda hard to tell….
How did I transform from left………………………………to right (no, let’s just say WRONG!)
What the Hell IS that under my chin…(My actual chin is really quite nice, eh?..If only you could find it!)
Sooo, getting back to my next journey…Decision time …..I am officially booked in for a “procedure” (nice term for going under a plastic surgeon’s well honed blade)…November 20th I will be saying goodbye to the only visible sign that I really am related to the turkey…Hey! I figured I’d better act before I ended up on someone’s platter in a few weeks…Yes, I have thought this over LOTS…Yes, McGyver is onboard with this…No, I am not scared, I am ecstatic! No, I am not doing this to please anyone….except MOI!…I want this done …FOR ME!!! And, no, this is no secret, for sure..I think my “experience” may be blog worthy…and maybe even help other peeps who are considering some “procedure” (Wow, I just actually got serious for a moment…)
After comparing my photos to the real Maxine, I decided that I was even a better Maxine than she was…I ask you, if this isn’t the face of a grizzled, knarled, saggy 80 year old, what is??? This lovely photo was at the top of my list…truth time…YOU NEED SOMETHING DONE!! FOR GOD’S SAKE, YOU ARE NOT 80..YOU ARE ONLY 64…JUST DO IT!!!!
AND SO I AM….STAY TUNED FOR THIS JOURNEY OF MINE…
What looks like a pillow on my left shoulder is my neck…pulling me over…JUST KIDDING! ( but not about that neck!)
