Cougar Town US – Hyena Town UK

The idea of Courtney Cox being ultimately attractive to younger men isn’t exactly a shock. She looks years younger than her years (unless she IS 25) and is always airbrushed to perfection by the time we clock her.

So it seems the current hit comedy USA Cougar Town throws up a few hormone fuelled questions..

I mean you’d think it would give us women of a certain age a feeling that if the opportunity presented itself we would like to play along for a while.

Would you?

The reality I suspect would be somewhat different.

This conversation took place yesterday when Dynamite came round. She walked into the kitchen where Teenwolf was standing with his back to her.

‘Who is that ?’ she mouthed silently at me pointing at his back.

Teenwolf turned round

‘Ooooh ‘she shrieked mortified it was the boy she had known since before he was born so she started giggling like a lunatic. ‘It’s you! My you have been working out’ further giggling accompanied with beetroot face. ‘ I can’t believe  it! ‘ she blurted  commencing giggles again. Before she died of embarrassment I steered her away into the garden for a drink. Well the sun was shining which just shouts DRINK to me. As we sat we wondered about being Cougars and decided the reality maybe somewhat different to the Hollywood Courtney Cox version.

 

Primarly cos who in their right mind of a young mannish variety would fancy us?

 

Then of course there is the fact we wouldn’t take our clothes off –never mind in the dark – at all.

 

A full face of make-up would be imperative at all times, which would result in that early morning wake- up horror of the poor young thing opening his non droopy eyelids to find himself  nose to nose with someone who looked more like a zombie flesh eater than an attractive older woman.

 

The amount of facial hair we are battling in reality means we are beginning to resemble actual Cougars

 

These young guys would probably be texting their friends to say ‘I won the bet – I humped a minger now cough up.

 

It’s just a no no

 

Oh that and the long suffering husband might have something to say about it.

 

And the teenwolf.

 

And whilst we are at it.

If a cougar ever goes near Teenwolf  I will rip her head off.

 

See I am a measured human being after all.

 

It’s just that the measure is off the scale.

 

So how was your day?

  • Funny the facial hair – mine – makes my cry.

  • The facial hair and cougar face got me laughing!!!

    Looking at ladies younger than my daughter (late 20s) feels weird, so I prefer women rather than girls. I think I always have!

    I blame Anne Bancroft…

  • I thought you would be dinner!

    Hilarious blog as ever Alison. I have to disagree on your main point though – you can’t beat a good boytoy. Okay, Teenwolf at 16 is mibbe a bit young (shame on you Di and your ogling!!!) but a few years older and it can be – take it from someone who’s been there – an, ahem, interesting experience…..

    Sorry, must dash – nubile young man in my kitchen tells me dinner is ready 🙂
