Old Lady Hands

*clap clap*
Okay readers, pay attention - it's pop quiz time!

In the picture below, is this the hand of
(a) Sarah's dead grandmother
(b) Sarah's mother
(c) Sarah

If you picked (c) you are a bitch correct!

Granted, it IS winter in New England and thus my entire body is hands are horrendously dry and pasty white.  But holy wrinkles!  When did my paws suddenly morph into the gnarly claws of a 90-year old arthritic corpse?  But at least my Silpada ring is cute though....right?

Soooo, I was thinking I should probably purchase these to get me through the rest of the winter (which around these parts means probably another frickin' 3 months) in order to spare others from the sight of my wrinkledness :

So if you see someone at Blissdom rocking the gloves and having to be physically restrained from licking him...

...that'd be me.

P.S.  Or perhaps I should just look on the bright side and be happy that I have Old Lady Hands instead of Man Hands?

I'm with you. In high school - HIGH SCHOOL! - one of my guy friends nicknamed me "Granny Hands."

Girl you need to get yourself to Bath & Body works for the Shea Cashmere hand lotion - it absorbs SUPER quick and is half off this week for $6 instead of $12.

I put one in my glove box and one by my bed. I never drive anywhere or go to bed without putting it on. It's taken at LEAST 5 years off my hands in the past month. So much better!

I vote for the gloves, you can't change man hands, but you can ALWAYS moisturize!

Can't wait to hang with you in Nashville!

OMG... you are BRAVE. I would never take a picture of my hands, because I have had old lady hands since I was about 11.

Your ring is beautiful. I hear you on the hands thing. I have noticed that mine are getting worse and worse. It doesn't help that I wash them a billion times a day due to having a new little one and not spreading germs to my immunocompromised 20 month old. I have only found 2 things that help me. The Mary Kay silky hands therapy kit or the Partylite Instant Manicure scrub.

My hands look about the same. It frightens me.

I will be the one at Blissdom with the dry AND bit-up cuticles, at least one of which will likely be bleeding. Why couldn't my anxious habit be to over-exercise (or exercise AT ALL) or religiously avoid sweets? So if you can get those gloves in a 2-pack, I'll join you in your hand-hiding at Blissdom!

Woman, you are hilarious. I live in an allegedly warm part of the country, but my hands look like that, too.

Would love to meet you at Blissdom. I'll be the one in the bright yellow, "Proud to be from Alabama" T-shirt.
