A random club observation

I celebrated my 35th birthday yesterday - yeah! The day was jammed packed with activities because hubby did a really good job of making sure that I was happy.

I feel compelled, however, to make an observation about what I saw at the club last night - and yes, I said club (you see my mommy came for a surprise visit for my birthday so I got to see my mom, mom and princess played all day and hubby and I went out on the town ... just the two of us).

So, we were the very first people in the club (and I attribute it mostly to the fact that we were just about the oldest people there). Being the first there gave us our choice of where to sit/stand, so we got a great little spot near the bar and we spent the entire night there.

I saw very attractive and mostly fly young ladies, dressed to nine coming in BUT the guys were just okay looking and okay dressed. I think the best looking guy in the place was hubby (and I'm not being partial)! Really, the guys were not good looking and they all looked like they had just rolled out of bed and came to the club.

What I found interesting as I watched the flirtation throughout the night was that every single girl in the club was extremely self-conscious. I saw each and every one (white, black, latina) fixing, and primming, and adjusting, and re-arranging constantly throughout the night. I saw the multiple trips to the bathroom to reapply lipstick and fix hair. All the while, the guys were just laying back. The women strove to perfect their looks while the guys just didn't care much about theirs. I wanted to scream - "stop fidgeting ... look at him". If guys go through the same self-consciousness as women do, they sure don't show it. Why are we so critical of ourselves? And, when does it stop? Does it ever?

Sure it stops. Once we are married. Oh wait, no I still do the self-conscious re-adjusting bit a little sometimes. so... hmmm... maybe it doesn't stop afterall.

Happy Birthday!!!!!!!! Of course I was thinking it is tomorrow and thus, I miss it :-) Glad you had a good time. On the club scene - ergo the reason I have no interest in playing that game again - it's so overrated!

Happy birthday! That scene must have been really annoying and kind of heartbreaking . . . but it's always good when your husband is the hottie in the crowd. :o)

OMG, I AM A LOSER FOR FORGETTING TO CALL YOU ON YOUR BIRTHDAY!!! Then again, your cell phone number is harder to get than a drink at the club (Ha, ha). Still no excuse, HAPPY BDAY!!
