The New York Daily News reported on a study regarding 'perceptions about age' conducted by a British-based funeral arrangement firm. The study looked at men and women and the differences between them.
Results showed that women feel past their prime at 29 but men don't consider themselves over the hill until 58. Talk about delusional.
A majority of the 1,000 people polled on the Avalon Funeral Plans website said 29 is when women don't have "it" anymore. Geez...there were many times I thought I didn't have' it' anymore until 'it' showed up. Now I make sure I carry 'it' with me wherever I go. Sometimes only I can see 'it', but that's all that matters.
To make my point I went to the NY Daily News website and left this comment.
"An Important Message To All The Young Babes Out There Reading This From A Wise Ageless Babe Who Knows Better. Don't Believe Everything You Read. Truth is..."There's No Expiration Date On Sexy"(SM). It's yours to own, and it's more about attitude than looks. As for the guys, thanks for showing us how to act delusionally young. We're catching on and catching up.

Then I got a call from my former radio producer pal Mark Goldman at Goldman McCormick PR to do a radio interview on this suvey with "The Ed Tyll Show" on BIG810am radio in Orlando. The show and Ed called just as I had jumped on a train. I felt weird talking loud in my seat so I stood and did the interview in between the train cars by where the doors open. I was in the middle of talking live on the air when the train jolted badly just as I leaned down to catch my purse from falling. I literally fell over without missing a beat in the interview. I may be occasionally 'off' but I'm surely not 'done' as a woman past her prime, could never have kept her cool or have gotten back up.
When do women think they're past their prime?....The survey results showed a whopping 50% of women said the first sign of being old is their "assets heading south." Agree, that is a bit of a problem.
More than a quarter of women said gray hairs were indicators of aging, while 10% cited saggy skin, and 3% said "realizing you've turned into your mother."
Men, on the other hand, didn't care about their looks. They were more interested in whether they could still get their groove on. They should buy better mirrors.
Nearly two-thirds said "decreased libido/not as 'able' in the bedroom" were surefire signs of being over the hill.
I say its never over until YOU say it's over. What do YOU say my fellow babes?
Were you past your prime at 29?
