Default Weightloss math: skin - fat = wrinkles!!!

My dad and I went to the Chinese restaurant for lunch yesterday and were fighting over who would pay the bill. Now keep in mind that I've been going to this place for a good seven years. The little Chinese lady at the counter wanted to know who the man was. I told her it was my dad. She told me that she would listen to him. She said he looked young and thought he was my boyfriend. She wanted to know where the nice young man was that I usually came in with and the two little kids. I told her that was my DH and grandchildren. She told me.......remember to do this in fractured English......."You look old! You got skinny and lots of wrinkles." I laughed so hard I almost cried. I told her when you are plump you're all filled out and no wrinkles, but when you are skinny and dried out you have plenty of wrinkles!

I need a good winter hat and told my sister everytime I tried one on I looked like a dried up old elf. She told me she wanted to see.....so tried one on and she exclaimed, "You do look like an elf!" So what is the morral of this story...well......I'll take wrinkles over bad health anyday and for gosh sakes drink your water!!!! LOL!!!!! I told one daughter the story and I'll bet I had ten calls from my family last night teasing me about being old and wrinkled!!! What goes around, comes around!!!! LOL!!!! Just started another fit of giggles!

Give me wrinkles anyday! Nothing a little plastics won't fix. I have started my "Rid the Wrinkles" fund.

LOL, I adore Asian people and this is one reason why. They don't mince words do they?

By the way, I bet you are as cute as a button!

Fah, rah, rah, rah, rah...

for what it's worth, my abdomen looks like a pillowcase filled with mashed potatoes
