SIGN ME UP

I met a lady from London the other day who was very charming. We sat and talked about her life adventures, from London England to somewhere in Spain. I was enthralled by her accent and her many mannerisms. She called us things like "lovey". She is in the "beauty business". Her words, not mine. She does a procedure with a machine which stimulates the muscles of the face and makes you look younger. I guessed her age to be somewhere around 45 to 50. She "maintains" her muscles about once a week while watching television. I was there supporting my friend who is interested in the training. While they continued discussing business issues and then future training, they turned to me. "Would you be willing to let her practice on you?" Practice on me? At first I had visions of a young Dakota Fanning. What if something goes wrong? The lady shared with us she will be 72 her next birthday. I'm thinking, I don't know about this. I have always been very happy with the way I look. I'm a grandmother. I don't want to look like their Mother. Anyway, she looked at me, and said with her very British accent, "We can train your face muscles, but we can't do anything about your turkey neck, Lovey." Well sign me up!!!!!!!

Does she realize how many years it's taken me to get this turkey neck???? Also my arms, when I wave, they continue to flap in the wind!!! There's probably nothing she can do for that either huh???
