I don't shave my legs. And now that I'm officially 60 years old, who cares? I'm too fat to wear shorts, but I do wear cropped pants and figure nobody'll notice. Big deal.
I see a cardiologist on a yearly basis because I have an irregular heart beat. My wonderful doc, who I'd been with for 12 years, recently retired.
I'm always anxious about seeing someone new, but concluded that even if he was a jerk, I could tolerate him for 10 minutes per year.
Thankfully, there was a good connection - personable and respectful.
He was checking my ankles for any signs of swelling and exclaimed, "oh, mercy, Kathy, you've got all this nice hair on your legs!!".
I thought, "oh sheesh, is he some kind of weirdo or what?"
I must have looked puzzled, so he replied, "it means your circulation is good - I'm so pleased for you".
Well, I'll take a compliment, no matter what the context.
