1. When you go out as a couple to restaurants, the waiter smiles at your husband and says, “It’s so nice that you take your mother out for dinner.”

2. Your preschooler asks why your neck looks like an owl’s nest. This same child has never noticed that daddy has a neck resembling anything bird related.

3. Your spouse does not seem to acquire wrinkles no matter how stressed out you try to make him.

4. You look more like Michael Douglas. He looks more like Catherine Zeta-Jones.

5. You will drop money on face creams that blast wrinkles! And defy age! Your spouse hasn’t used face cream since — well, ever.

6. You’re constantly avoiding florescent lights and searching for dim lighting situations.  He has never once thought about lighting except for that time you were both looking at different options for recessed lighting for your family room and he passed out from a combination of fatigue and boredom.

7. He has never taken a bad driver’s license photo. Even when he was hungover. After 4 days at Mardi Gras.

8. His grey hairs look like glistening highlights that magnify his handsomeness. Yours look like grey hairs.

9. At carnivals, they can never guess his age. He has a carny trophy shelf of stuffed animals to prove it. You no longer frequent carnivals.

10. A neighbor compliments you on being named Cougar of the Cul-de-sac despite the fact that your spouse is older than you.

    Well you are obviously not speaking about yourself as you look FAB!!! I too suffer from the same thing…hubbie looks great – no gray hairs, two years older than I and looks wayyyyyyyy better. Not fair!

  • Jackie says:

    I really think its the constant facial shaving, its an everyday exfoliation that men do! Wrinkle free like me legs! lol
    The nice gray hair annoys me too!

  • Marley C. says:

    Yep…my husband just gets better looking…and I’m just getting weird skin and a lot of gray hair. I’m losing more hair than he is!

  • Laurie says:

    Not only does my husband LOOK younger even tho. he’s 4 years older, he loses 5 lbs. overnight by only eating 10% less than he usually eats at dinner while I starve myself and don’t lose an ounce!

    The greys in my husband’s black head of hair just look like shiny black hairs. And if they don’t, he still gets the “distinguished” excuse. Meanwhile, mine are short and stick straight up out of my head.

    Men are lucky in that they often gain sex appeal.

    But, for the record, you guys do look the same age and you look amazing – body and face!

    For the record, cougar of the cul de sac, makes me cringe. Who named you that? And, doesn’t cougar mean an older woman who seeks sex with younger men?

  • Steph says:

    ummm how can anyone say you look like Rick’s MOTHER….. OMG. Although I have seen her picture on this blog and she is quite beautiful and so are you. but still, no tip for the waiter. My hubby is 11 years older and at first there were some who assumed he was my dad. after 22 years of marriage, 2 children, and a few more pounds, no one thinks I’m the youngster anymore:) anyway, your blog is hilarious and I love how you have the courage to write things I wouldn’t tell.
