Fifty Ain't so Nifty

Saturday, February 26, 2011

What's so nifty about being fifty? I turned fifty on December 27th of last year. Did I get extra presents? No, but I did get a birthday card from AARP! Hey, I'm not a senior citizen yet or am I?

I have to admit there are days when I feel a hundred instead of fifty. Maybe I need all the discounts I can get? I could use a few nips and tucks here and there, alright everywhere. My boobs sag, my butt too. My arms are flabby and so is my belly... I'm living proof that fifty is nowhere near nifty!

    Crazy enough I received an offer from AARP for a lifetime membership for $12. For many years I received the Modern Maturity magazine and had a membership card that gave me discount benefits. Then when I turned 55 they sent me a bill saying that I now had to pay $12 per year to keep my membership. I guess my lifetime was too long. I didn't pay the bill, but they still send me the "magazine" which now is not as good as it used to be.
    But 50 and beyond doesn't seem to be that bad, just different physically, but mentally I feel about the same.

    Ohhh, just hang in there and hold on. Just remember, you have to live to get old. That's one saving grace, and sadly, the only one I can think of, lol.

    I'm following you now, thanks a million, love your blog. Keri

    I didn't know if it was ok to be amused by your post. I'm still a long ways from turning 50, but I already think about it. But, I agree with Keri...if you're not getting older then there lays a problem.

    P.S.
    Returning the blog love :-0

  1. 50 ain't so bad!!! It's better than the alternative ;-) The funny thing is mentally I'm so not 50 ~ looking in the mirror is always a shock!
