So, I’m committed to going to this over-40s-singles thing tomorrow night, and I’m RIGHT on the edge of a full-blown panic attack. I really hope I don’t chicken out and panic at the last minute. It could happen. The morning of my wedding, back in 1987, I remember waking up and thinking “it’s not too late to run away to Panama”. The thing is at 8, so maybe I’ll go to knitting at 7 for a while and calm the hell down.
What the hell do I wear? I want to look umm…available, but not slutty. I don’t want to dress too much younger than I am, and look like an idiot, but on the other hand, I’m young-at-heart and I have my own style, and I gotta be me! Also, what about heels? I love boots with heels, but they make me about six foot three. Too intimidating?
What if it’s a room full of women and no men? What if everyone else is not only over 40, but over 60? What if they’re all really short?!? What if they’re (and this is the worst of all) totally boring?
