Mother's Day

There is a book called “I Feel Bad About My Neck”. It was featured on “Oprah” or something a long, long time ago. The title really stuck with me and I wondered if that really was a thing. It is, of course, but the book was written by the same lady as “When Harry Met Sally”, “Sleepless in Seattle” and “You’ve Got Mail”. I’m sure the book’s cutesy, witty and positive, but it’s still a thing.
Aging is a normal part of life, though I have yet to find a wrinkle or a gray hair. Chris on the other hand... 
I hate how women of a certain age are made to feel. Do they have tracheotomy scars or bent necks to feel bad about? Certainly not, but they illustrate how I could’ve been dead, but I’m not. And who among us hasn’t had a near miss or two? Or who doesn’t feel like the 22 year old version of herself? Now to the moms who can’t get back to how they were before, thank you. And happy Mother’s Day.
