    good sleep or lack of it. Eating well or not. Exercising or not. All sorts of things can affect the appearance.
    Sometimes it’s just wearing a color that clashes with your skin. Or a hair color that clashes with the skin. Some years back a bottled redhead in the area had orange-red hair that made her face look green.

    Some days we are more willing to and accept and allow for the fact that we are not as young as we are in our mind.

    Connie’s right- I think like a teenager until I look in a mirror and see this dude pushing 70 staring out at me.

    I ALWAYS think like a teenager or even younger.
    Growing old is mandatory.
    Growing up is optional.

    I agree with all that, and yet, as I get a lot older I can look back on photos from my HS days and when I was just in my 40s and see that I really DID look great.

    It was all you said, but also who I was comparing myself to “comparison is the thief of joy”.

    And there’s the FACT that we women look in the mirror and see every fault; I don’t think that men are as realistic (or critical).

    In one of my dance classes the mirrors for some reason were all slanted slightly away from us, so that when we practiced in front of them our legs seemed endless. I used to love latin practice there! :-)

    I’ve got a similar thing with my writing. Some nights what I read on the screen looks terrible, but when I read it again after a good night’s sleep, the creative writing fairies seem to have fixed it up for me and it looks much better.

    Heh, Connie looks about 14 in panel 2.

    Here Elly is going to be stretching and bending along with a bunch of other women. Some women really do need to be in the company of other women in order to perk them up. The smells of other women, the melodic tone of their voices… it’s really too bad my mother wasn’t able to brave the company of other women until later in her life. I think she was too sensitive and fearful of what they thought of her that she was paralyzed into inaction. Yet she needed to be among women.

    Connie is in trousers in the first panel, then in her leotard in the second panel. Either Elly is a slow speaker or Connie is Wonder Woman. :)

    Bra and better posture would do wonders!

    It sure would change their appearance if “they’d just wear bras” and nothing else! :)
