Take me outa that folder! A comic Pinterest moment

It looks like at some point, I put my headshots on Pinterest. The idea was to share it with the event planners who hire me for speaking gigs when they need headshots but I ended up using google photos. I forgot about the pinterest folder.

So I noticed recently that one of my pins had a lot of views and a few re-pins. I’m not that active on the platform but I got excited because I thought it meant I was in some speaker folders.

Not the case.

On further investigation, I see that I’m in folders about hair. Women make a lot of folders about haircuts. I was totally OK with the “Beauty over 40.”

I was not so overjoyed with the “Over 60” pin below because I am younger than the folder age. I wanted to object and write a comment to express that I was not yet sixty. But apparently that’s not an option.

Despite my real age which, by the way, is under 60, Pinterest has declared me over that number. So now I’m mad at Pinterest and the woman who made the folder and I need to find a med spa for some kind of intense and youthful skin treatment.
