The wildest thing just happened to me. I was just invite to join AARP. I'll be 50 on Thursday. I don't understand how this happened. I mean, I still feel 25, though God knows I don't fit into those clothes anymore (sigh). It just seems so odd to think that I am half a century old! LOL
I see photos of friends from high school and I secretly think to myself "what on earth happened there?" Knowing full well that they are probably thinking the same thing about me! I could dye my hair and drop the weight and maybe get a tuck or two done, but this old carcass would still have 50 years of wear and tear on it, so what's the point of that? I mean I'm not fooling anyone. I know too much to still be in my 20s. LOL
It's not so much that I mind my age, because I really don't. It's just WEIRD to think that I am 50 years old. It's hard to conceive of myself being 50. That's such a "grown up" age! Totally not me!
Supposedly this birthday ushers in the next phase of life. I don't know who's making these rules up because I still have 5 children at home! There's no plans for retirement. I've got too much work to do. So, maybe this isn't such a big deal. Nothing has really changed. Only now I guess I will start getting senior citizen's discounts at the movies and at restaurants. That would be o.k. I guess. But it seems sort of silly. Wednesday I'm middle aged and on Thursday I'm so decrepit I deserve pity discounts? I'm just sayin....
Ah, Well no worries. Happy Birthday to me and many more! LOL
