The Irony Of It All

Later this month I'll be turning 50. No big deal, just another year. I'm looking good and feeling good. In short, I'm happy and peppy and bursting with love.

And then it happened. Today in the mail was my formal invitation to join the AARP.

And here I am, still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.

You only have to be 50 to join AARP?

Oh, wah wah wah. I became a member of AARP in my 30's, thanks to the membership of my husband when he hit 50 - a May-December relationship that was said to be doomed from the start. Guess we showed them - now I'm old enough for my own membership and we are still married. But Jeanne is totally right - 50 is the new 30! And you are clearly in good company!
