I'm Different....

Game Marbles Shapes clip artI often feel that I am not the "typical" woman. Not that it's a bad thing, but it's, well...different.

  • I don't care for wine or most mixed drinks. Kahlua & cream or a strawberry daiquiri are my favorites. But a dark beer (stout or porter) is my preferred alcoholic drink. It seems like most women like wine and love to joke about it. Sigh....
     
  • I don't wear make-up. I used to, in my younger professional days, but I was always understated. A little mascara, blush and lipstick. Going out for something special, I might add eye liner, eye shadow and a little foundation. I know if I wore make-up, I might look better but since age 50, I pretty much gave it up. Sigh...
     
  • I don't color my hair. I did from my 20s to age 50. A lifestyle change, living full-time in a motorhome, necessitated that change. No way could I afford to pay someone, I'd done it myself for 30 years. I know I would look younger if I colored it, now I have to change the colors of the clothes I wear to make up for it. Sigh...
     
  • I don't like to dress up. Honest! At my age, I much prefer comfort and I've yet to find comfortable dress-up clothes that also look good on me. Jeans and t-shirts (sweatshirts) work for me. I finally bought a black maxi-dress that I can accessorize when on cruises, but that's about it. Sigh...
     
  • I like simple food and find it hard to try new things. I grew up in New England with hot dogs & beans, meatloaf, beef stew, clam chowder and simple casserole dishes. There are MANY restaurants here in Cuenca, Ecuador but many of them are "fou-fou" places. I look at the photos other share and realize that's just not for me. Give me plain food and I'm good to go. Sigh...
     
  • I don't follow fashion trends, I don't stay up on the most current music, I don't know who the top authors/actors/etc are. When I do run into these things, it's totally by accident. Doesn't mean I don't care or like these things or people, just that they're not at the top of my "I need to know about" lists. Sigh...
I'm typical for me, not for everyone else. But that's okay, I like me!

I'm tired of talking to myself. Drop a note, please?
