It's Official - I'm accepting that I'm old!
I'm starting to get medicare information from every carrier around. Like I needed one more thing to muddle through. Plan A, Plan B, drugs, hospitalization...I'm so confused. I think turning sixty-five might be the hardest birthday yet. I'm trying to grow old gracefully, but mother nature is having no part of it. Yes, everything you've heard about growing old is true, except that part about fine wine. Gimme a break. Someone should have written a manual to prepare a person for the shock!
Oh, did I forget to mention that what happens to your upper arms eventually happens to the other half? Jello has nothing on me when it comes to wiggling. The question I want to ask is why don't men suffer as much when they age? We've already been cheated by being the ones to birth the children, have periods, go through menopause... so tell me how come men grow more distinguished with age while women just lose their sex appeal and turn into a mound of loose skin?
