  • I guess I talk a lot about growing old. It gets old... I know. It takes about a hundred dollars and an hour and a half at Sereni Salon to get me looking like I'm not sixty years old. After all that, I look not a day over fifty seven and a half. Is it worth it?

    Every month, I tell Olga, "Just shave it off so I can come in grey without the skunk streak!" And every month, she talks me out of it. "You're too young to be gray," she says. Huh???

    Why is it that men earn the term "distinguished" when they go grey and women just get old. Corporate women of a certain age might as well hang up their black suits and pumps and learn to ask, "paper or plastic?"
