I hope that none of you was inconvenienced by the tremors in the earth yesterday. You see, I did a terrible thing yesterday. I did the unthinkable. I told my age.
Age in my husband's family has always been a deep, dark secret. They feel that a woman should never reveal her age. I, on the other hand, feel age is a thing to be celebrated. After all, isn't it great to add another year?
I have a sister-in -law who actually gets insulted when anyone, even a doctor, asks her her age. She's well up there, quite a bit older than I (she has a daughter who is 7 years younger than I). I'd consider it quite an achievement to make it that far and I would shout it from the rooftops, if anyone would listen.
Anyway, again, I hope you weren't inconvenienced by the tremors and noise. It's just my husband and mother-in-law spinning in their graves.
