Ok. My 22 year old au pair says I'm not old, but I disagree for the following reasons:
1. I wear a shower cap.
It's got flowers against a black background and is as cute as can be. Except it's a shower cap, and I look like I should be eating some curds and whey and waiting for a spider. My husband hates it. But he's never had to wash and dry girl hair.
2. I always have mints in my guest bathroom.
But seriously, who doesn't like a mint? And they're my husband's favorite Lifesaver (Wintergreen, if you must know), because I'm that kind of wife.
3. I keep a box of Kleenex in my car.
And, no, it's not in my back window with my Beanie Baby collection. However, as someone who cries A LOT I can say from experience that it beats the heck out of fast food napkins, receipts and all the other paper product substitutes I've been reduced to using in a jam.
4. I wear slips.
I own them in several lengths and colors too. My mom told me to.
5. I've started to expect thank-you notes.
Well, did you get my gift or not? Because I didn't Amazon Prime you that gem just to sit here and wonder.
I also don't understand Snapchat, am concerned about my increasing number of dark spots, and want to use my teacher voice on kids at the movies, but let's stick to these five reasons for now.
