Say What? Are You Serious!

THIS came in the mail for me today:
What the heck? I opened it. To this:
Are they freakin' kidding me? Seriously?
Oh, I am sorry if you are "OLD" like me apparently, you may not be able to read this. Let me interpret it.
HEY OLD LADY! WE FOUND YOU. AND WE KNOW THERE IS NOTHING NICER TO CALL YOU ON BEING OLD AND GOING THROUGH "THE CHANGE" SO COME ON AND JOIN US TO EXPLAIN, YOU ARE GETTING OLD!!!! OH YEAH, THE FIRST ONE IS FREE! WE WILL ONLY FIND HIDDEN FEES AND CHARGE YOU FOR ADDITIONAL CLASSES THAT WE INTRIGUE YOU WITH AND CON YOU INTO FEELING BETTER ABOUT GETTING OLD!!!"
"Old" or "Pre-Old" woman, at least this woman, doesn't like to be reminded of this crap. Certainly do not want to sign up for a freakin' seminar.

Show me some sensitivity!

A few years ago, one of my Besties, decided we all needed to prepare for Menopause. She found some helpful books, bought a set for herself and send us each a set. I threw them in a closet. Mind you I am the oldest of the Besties. If I don't feel old, how can they? Why rush it? Well, a couple of years later, I did pull the books out and found them very helpful. At least in understanding the whole pre-menopause stuff. I am still "child-bearing" and not completely menopausal. I really don't need seminars and such to prepare me. Quite capable of pulling my own information off the Internet and from my books.

How do these people get the information that I am "old"? It's not like I am 50 and joined AARP.

Ha Ha! reading my blog, right.

Ha Ha, I'm glad you held on to those books and found some useful info. But I think the menopause U is a bit too much for even me, or that awful Menopause, The Musical? Please...Deb

Relax, Janis. There are lots of fishermen out there trying to find their fish, sell you stuff. All you need to know is that you will go through hormonal changes; and your doctor is the best person to guide you. Mostly, though, like any stage in life, is all about finding your groove in everything you do.

You're so funny :-)

I'm with you - no need for me to prepare, thank you very much, and at 44, I'm still in the midst of childbearing years, though trying to prevent that! Instead, there are other issues at this time, and I'm not even thinking about menopause.

For heaven's sake!

Now that I'm done with menopause, I'm happy again. It was rough though a great excuse to be a raging b*tch for a few years.

I completely forgot about our little care package from Deb. In a few weeks, you will be the only one of our original four that can still bear children. So, as you told me the other day, technically you are the youngest one.
