You know you've seen them on the street. They're the women we love to hate, the ones with the tight jeans and tiny, tight butts you could bounce a quarter off of. We despise these women, envy them and wonder how the hell they have time to hit the gym when we can't seem to make time to brush our hair some days. And then ... they turn around.
You catch a glimpse of their faces and all is well with the world once again. Sure, she has the ass of a 17-year-old -- but she also has the face of the Crypt Keeper. Clearly, this woman chose her ass over her face.
It's a sad fact of getting older -- no, not old -- just older. When we were young and nubile, we could slim down and still have that beautiful full-cheeked look of youth. Now it seems, just when we finally get within our five- to 10-pound goal and are making a dent in getting rid of that baby weight once and for all, the harsh reality hits. Losing weight doesn't necessarily look good on us. In fact, often, the thinner we look, the older we look. Sometimes, life just ain't fair.
Remember that awful, nightmare inducing scene in Sophie's Choice where Meryl Streep is forced to choose between her children?? No, of course it's not the same thing ... but as we moms get older, we need to make a choice here as well. Which is more important ... having a youthful face or a youthful body? Sure, that hot bod will come on handy next time you have to go swimsuit shopping or when your honey insists on keeping the lights on. But let's not kid ourselves, you can hide a big butt and thighs with the right outfit and strategically placed candlelight -- but there's not much you can do with a face that looks drawn, hollow and old.
Now of course there are modern medical marvels that can help women with this dilemma. Doctors can harvest fat from your own body and inject it back into your face to replace the volume that time has so cruelly taken away. But, this virtual fountain of youth in a needle can cost thousands of dollars. So, if you don't have an extra roll of cash lying around to shoot fat back into your face -- an extra roll of fat on your butt may not be such a bad idea after all.
How about you? What would you chose -- your face or your ass?
