When did I start having these crazy-ass hand veins? How did that happen?!? I'm 44 with the hands of a grandmother. I want to raise my hands above my heart so that all the blood rushes from them and I can pretend they are still young and pretty and not all blue and bulgy and veiny.
The last time I was under a general anesthetic? I didn't have bulgy veins for several weeks. It was fantastic! My hands looked like a teenager's. Does your blood get thinner with a general? If I had elective surgery every little while, would my hands look younger too? They could give me a shot of botox for my forehead lines, but do it while I was under a general and I'd wake up with a young face AND young hands.
My hands totally give me away. My face, from a relative distance, appears young - full of vim and vigour. My hands? Might be mistaken for the Evil Queen's from Disney's Snow White. I shall endeavour to turn this into a 'glass 1/2 full' moment... If I were to be hospitalized, they'd have NO problem finding a vein for the IV. There, see? Always a bright side.
Although, when I'm having sex, I do try to leave my hands over my head so that David doesn't think that he's giving an octogenarian a good rogering.
