Guess what, I was 50 a few days ago. So what do you think I had to mark that special milestone in my life? It is half a century after all.
Perhaps some slippers? Or a book on how to look ten years younger? Maybe an eternity ring from my husband?
I chose a belly piercing. WHAT? Little old me, who used to be the shy retiring girl?
Well, I've news for you. I just found out life's not a rehearsal. Time to grab it with both hands, before it's too late.
Am I making sense?
So why the piercing? My heroine in DARK SECRETS has one, and so does the heroine in my WIP. I guess I thought why not. Why can't I have one?
My husband who bought it for me, is over the moon. He likes it. I mean he really likes it.
So this got me to thinking. Do you think I'm too old? A sad case hankering after her youth? Or do you think I did the right thing? After all, when today's youngsters get to my age, they're hardly going to hang up their piercings.
Now for the POLL. Feel free to vote as you feel. At the bottom of the poll is a space to put your own answer.
Thanks for stopping by. Jan
