When did that happen?” I thought to myself. “When did I start getting turned on by old guys?” I had a big LOL moment and checked him out for ring status, of which he wore none. My Uber was 3 minutes away. I briefly fantasized about how nice it would be to meet a man who thought gray hair was sexy too, so I would have the confidence to stop coloring mine. I wasn’t sure, but it felt like I would be narrowing the dating pool even further if I went au naturel. He was definitely my age and it was not fair that he could look so sexy with so little work. My Uber was 2 minutes away....

OLLY and L-Theanine: Benefits, Risks, Sources, and Dosage

Sometimes it just happens when I have alot on my mind and the thoughts are thrumming through my brain and I can neither quiet them nor tuck them into a compartment.
