Every year I get together with my best friends from college for an extended girls weekend. We find a place to meet and everyone brings their stories and pictures to share from the prior year. This has turned out to be something we all look forward to greatly.
A few years ago, we met in Las Vegas. One night we saw a great show, had a leisurely dinner and while we were getting up to leave the restaurant, a group of young Aussie men who were celebrating one’s bachelor party started chatting us up. They wanted to include us in their ongoing festivities. My girlfriend said to them…don’t you know how old we are? The young man cheerily replied…yes, probably about 40 but it doesn’t matter.
Needless to say, for us “over 50 somethings” we were beyond thrilled! Maybe that means we are beating the aging process! We floated out of the restaurant. Actually, 40 likely seemed ancient to them as they could have easily been any of our sons!
We’ll never know what was really meant but for us more mature gals, it was an “ageless” moment we’ll never forget. We repeat the details and relive that particular trip every year! thanks guys!
