It's true, many women in our town are jealous of her. And to the outside world she does look...well...perfect. She is a successful financial advisor in her own firm, gorgeous, with a beautiful home, a handsome husband and two smart accomplished daughters.  Because she works out regularly she is in AMAZING shape and wears clothes that most 55 year old women could never get away with. When she walks down the street, men driving by get whiplash checking her out. Oh yes. She is perfect.
