50 Reasons Why

      No Comments on 50 Reasons Why

Well, it finally happened.  I turned 50 this past week.

People keep asking me how I feel.  The answer is I have no idea.   I have been low-key dreading this for some time now, but now that it’s actually here I don’t know what I was expecting.

I certainly don’t feel like I thought I would when I thought about this milestone some time ago.  I feel older, but not OLD.

I got my first mailing from AARP 2 weeks before my birthday.  My husband (who is older than me) thought that was pretty funny.   I see adds for products for “older adults” that I KNOW are aimed at me (even though the actors in the ads look to be at LEAST 75).

But I’m not OLD, right?

Yes, I have coworkers young enough to be my kids.  Sure, I have given up any pretense of knowing anyone on top 40 radio.  I admit I tell people I’m too old for Tik Tok.  It’s true my short term memory is absolute shit.  And perhaps best of all (ha) , I’m in full on menopause.  But I’m not THAT old.

Right?

Right?
