Before you sickos start thinking I'm talking dirty, let me be clear: I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT THAT BOX. I'm talking about the box on surveys that forces me to commit to an age bracket.
I can't believe I can actually have so much in common with someone in her 40s. I have only recently committed to trying age-fighting products. A woman in her 40s has no doubt tried a lot more of them than I have. She's also more likely to accept that those products don't make changes overnight - I am not. I want instant change. Note: I'm not quite fighting wrinkles. I'm fighting sun damage caused by my foolish years of not wearing sunblock regularly.
Also, does a woman who is 44-years-old admit to watching things like Teen Mom? Because I do.
Does a woman who is 44-years-old get excited about Wonder Woman-themed makeup products? I do.
Does a 44-year-old woman think Eat Pray Love is a horrible example to women? I do.
I know that I'm not like all ladies my age. But I completely resent the idea that a box represents ME. I just don't want to be confined to that box. So, surveyors, forgive me if I stop checking your stupid box. I'll choose the one that represents me (unless you're checking ID - and try doing that over the Internet). It's not me. It's you.
