I had no idea.
I was just sitting, minding my own business, watching "the day after tomorrow" and I thought to myself "That Sela Ward is a beautiful older woman." And suddenly it dawned on me. She's my age!!
I know my kids think I'm old. I know that the teenagers I see at the mall think I'm old, but till this moment, I always kind of thought they just see me as a kinda cool hip mom. Someone to look up to - to aspire to be. "Gee, like, we want to look as good as she does when I'm that old...like when I'm 30."
But I'm watching Sela Ward and Dennis Quaid and they're playing Jake Gyllanhaal's parents and I can't help but think - Wait a minute! I'm old enough to be Jake Gyllanhaal's mom?
I mean, if he saw me on the street, he would be like "Wow! She's hot!" Right?
Turns out, if he saw me on the street, he would probably help me try to cross it.
