Rambling

I try not to say stuff like: my joints hurt, I have indigestion, I’m tired. When you’re 51 (!), people automatically say stuff like “Well, you’re not getting any younger.” Hell, that crap happens at every age. Leave me alone.

I think people get old when they start thinking like that and say stuff like “getting old sucks.” All ages suck, you moron. Men-o-pause and Woman-o-pause might be a bitch, but puberty was no picnic either.

Hmm, let’s see:

Age 1 – cutting teeth. That sucks.
Age 13 – getting your first monthly visitor. That really sucks.
Age 17-22 – losing your big V. Ouch.
Age 18-23 – going into major depression because the person who took big V is a jerkface.
Age 24-30 – Babies.
Age 30-death – Depression because you’re getting older.

Ha.

A Silly Man said...

Yep, we are all dying from the day we are born.

At least its not 22 there like it is here :-(

I hope you aren't getting the flu.

Laurie said...

Jen - There you go.

Leslie - Ugh! 12!!

J's Daughter - I'm glad you stopped by, too!

A Silly Man - Hi, there! I see you made it home. 22?! No way, Jose. No flu here. I feel fine.

I thought that men-o-pose = sex
woman-o-pose = think about it :lol:

Oh my god! If you gave me a billion dollars, I wouldn't go back to 12. Crying, miserable, self-loathing, awkward and confused. Eeesh!

This was a good one. I agree, whining and complaining will kill you...

Laurie said...

Nomad - Hahahah! I like your new picture. :)

La Sirena - Amen to that.
