teaser tuesday

oldpeoplekissingI’m participating in a Tuesday book meme this week where you open the book you’re reading to a random page and share two lines. I just started reading the Pulitzer Prize winning book, Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout. I opened the book to page 127 and spotted these two sentences: They weren’t young anymore, this was the thing. They kept telling each other as though they couldn’t believe it. Those lines struck me as pretty funny because my husband and I often do the same thing. He’ll complain about some misbehaving aging body part (on himself, he knows better than to notice or point out mine!) and then we’ll comment on how old we’re getting. This exchange is usually followed by shrugs and one of us saying rather Zen-like, “Well, what’s the alternative?”  And no, that is not me and Mr. bookbabie in the photo smooching, but hopefully it will be someday!

  1. I hope my husband and I are the couple in the photo someday too! (Well, maybe better dressed with better glasses)

  2. LOL!! When we see people who are supposed be our age on TV, we look at each other and say, “we don’t look that old, do we?” “Nah.”

  3. What a great photo! And I totally understand the sentiment – I am sometimes boggled to think about how old I actually am! When did that happen?!?

    My teaser is here.

  4. My husband and I do the same thing and since his 40th bday is this weekend, he has been especially crotchety (sp?) lately. What is it about turning 40? I don’t think I changed when I hit the big 4-0. To me, I am still above ground and that’s fine by me.

  5. Cute post, Lillie—and alot of truth to it. George and I didn’t meet ’til we were 59 yrs. old. Now we are trying to make up for all of those lost years… AND—somedays we both feel very tired and old!!!! ha


  6. 🙂 Your teaser made me smile. I’m 32, and met my husband when we were in high school, and sometimes we still feel like we are teenagers, and other times we feel MUCH older. LOL

    Here’s my Teaser! ~ Wendi

  7. So cute. I have old neighbors who just celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary last month and they are the sweetest couple ever. I can only hope to be like them someday.

  8. bookbabie, thank you for commenting at my Purple Photo Passion post this week! Your photos are gorgeous, sharp and crisp. The lighting in that first one (coming storm; husband with wine) is amazing! Elizabeth Strout was our author for our Book and Author luncheon several years back. She’s a lovely person. 🙂
