Having a lovely birthday lunch with one of my oldest and dearest friends. Since we were five years old and she was a bridesmaid at my wedding. So the subject switched to age and we didn’t want to ruin a wonderful lunch by talking about anything depressing. My friend smiled and said her dentist told her that he can’t believe her age, since he knows her records. “If I didn’t know how old you were, I would think in your 60’s.” She does look great and has beautiful skin……Definitely not my style to play “can you top this” but I had to tell her what my dentist told me several months ago.
“You have the gums of a 40-year-old.”
We raised our glasses and made a toast to ourselves.
