"Some people say I should act my age but I don't care what people think of me. I hang out with whomever I please. I love to act silly on the cruise ships. I like to make my friends laugh. "
That's the philosophical locale I've reached in my life as well. The best advice I was ever given was "be yourself" . It's been a revelation reached later in life that most will either like me or they won't, and I have limited control of their sentiments.
As for acting silly on cruise ships, I'm bad about that. Karaoke machines are a lure to make me play the fool then disarm everyone with self deprecating humor. Does it truly matter? Will In see these people again?
