J is for Jowls

There comes a time in life when you look in the mirror and begin to see fine lines and wrinkles. This is pretty bad news in a society focussed on youth and beauty. However, that day it is not so bad as the one when you notice for the first time that your neck and chin appear somewhat...saggy.

But whatever you do the sagging chin flesh is still there!

  2. I know how you feel, Paula. My saggy chin gets me down (literally!). Thank goodness for chocolate and alcohol:)
