Now, not only do I feel old, I feel BOOOOORING!

"26. Gone skinny dipping"? Really? Wow! I'm impressed! I wouldn't do it. Or in a private pool, surrounded by very tall walls ^_^

I never said anyone was around ... I looked pretty carefully. ^_^

Well, there was the one slumber party where a friend and I doffed PJs and jumped in the creek. For, like a split sec. Lit by one, small flashlight.

I'm not quite the exhibitionist that it may appear. ^_^

Is the movie "Death Becomes Her"?

Allanna said...

Noooooo .... But it does have a certain red-headed actress in it.

It's a remake, if that helps!

Freaky friday? The one with Lindsay Lohan?
Gosh! I haven't watched this in alooooong time.

My Cynthia, you've hit it on the nose. Yes, it's the line Jaime Lee Curtis says when she and Lindsey Lohan switch bodies in "Freaky Friday."

I just really like that line. I use it just about every time that I feel old. Which is more often than I'd like. :(

But it IS a fun like to use. Especially if you grab your face like JLC does as she delivers the line. ^_^

Counting ...
