- The quality of being generically, inoffensively, broadly, boringly attractive.
- When one looks good enough.
Turning 30 meant a lot of things for me. It marked the end of my long (too-long) youth. The first shaky step on my path toward middle age. A growing waistline; a wasting hairline.
The crack of a starter’s pistol, marking the beginning of a long, tiresome race I’m absolutely certain to lose.
It’s grim shit. But there’s an upside. A remarkable upside.
Now, when I wake up and look at my face, one day pudgier… one or two more lines hiding around my eyes… I realize that this is the best I’m going to look.
I’m as handsome as I’m gonna get – every single day.
When you think about it that way… it’s kinda great.
So up yours, 30s.
I look alright.
