Grocery Store Music and Really Old Cougars

I was waiting my turn in line at Ukrop's on Saturday and I heard "My Cherie Amour" by Stevie Wonder come on as the background music. Of course, I begin to absent-mindedly sing along with Stevie, being the child of the sixties and Motown that I am. I'm patiently waiting, and maybe starting to tap my feet a little, maybe a little hip action going on--I'm swept up in the moment but not really aware of it. Then the checkout lady in the neighboring station turns around and shouts, "Who's singing?" And to my surprise, my checkout lady, plus the bagger guy, and I all answer at once, "I am!"

I still maintain that Food Lion has better music. I think all the FL stores must subscribe to the same music selection, because every time I'm in a FL, some old song from the eighties comes on and I have to sing along just a little too loudly as I stroll through the aisles.

Abrupt change of subject--I'm watching a trashy report of Ivana Trump's umpteenth wedding on ET. Wow, she is so tragic. First of all, she is botoxed and collagenized within an inch of her life. And then she is marrying some hot but very cheesy European guy who looks young enough to be her son's best friend. And she's having this gigantic, outrageously expensive wedding with more bridesmaids than there are plural wives in Texas. I guess money can't buy taste.

I saw the same show! Botox is ruining all the beautiful women in Hollywood. What I don't understand is why they don't see how bad it looks? Priscilla Presley can't even smile on Dancing With the Stars! I don't say it to be mean. I really hate it for them. Audrey Hepburn was gorgeous and infinitely classy until the day she died, and Botox wasn't around then.

Poor Priscilla got some bogus botox, too. I agree--Why would you think shooting botulism into your face is a good idea??

Lauren Bacall, Audrey Hepburn, the Redgrave sisters, Katherine Hepburn--they all are (or were) celebrated for their timeless beauty. How sad that aging gracefully is no longer an option for these high profile women.
