Hopefully for our readership in and around the 40 year old demographic the title should be a no brainer. For our young, hip followers who have no idea what the title means well, I hate to tell you you’re not quite as hip as you think are. Correction, you’re not quite as hip as we were at your age. Actually, TV over all is less hip. It’s not your fault. We still adore
your young, lithe, wrinkle-free bodies you.
Anyway, we’re now into February, the most important month on the Cougar calendar. It’s a time when we reflect on our most awesome 40+ lives where we’ve perfected desirable grown up lady skills like cleaning a kitchen, dropping kids off and picking them up, cruising through the everyday mostly
aging and invisible undetected but magically keeping everyone and everything together. Raised on shows like “Fantasy Island,” we’re living the lives we were promised, where a man with an accent is always waiting for us with open arms, amazing relationship advice and cocktails. Or – and only because we don’t live on a tropical island – a man with a slur is always waiting on a bar stool with open legs and bad lines offering to watch us sip our cocktails from a straw wedged in between our boobs.
We want to share the fantasy with you. De plane will be landing here at the Cougar Den on February 14. Hop on board. We want to spread the like vibe and offer you a moment’s retreat from your own awesome lives to pile on some more awesome. We want to be a collective awesome. The success of the event depends on your participation.
Speaking of participation, we’ve decided that this year, to bring everyone together in a more intimate way we’re organizing….
