My 50th birthday (yes, it's true) is rapidly approaching. I was having a wonderful day, and feeling pretty copacetic about it, until I received in the mail today these two things: 1) my Official AARP Membership Card (no shit!), and 2) a message from my doctor that I am due for a physical, and that I need to schedule my first COLONOSCOPY. ARRGGH! Life is cruel. Life is cruel. Life is cruel.

LOL!! I love your scream image!

My husband turned 50 last year, I was amused how quickly that AARP card arrived. Now we get the magazine.

Maybe AARP really stands for:
An Amazingly Remarkable Poet--

think of that when you look at your card.

Happy early Birthday! Hope to see you soon!

Maybe Nurse Jackie will be there to administer your sedation drugs like a soprano with wings.

Enjoy!
And happy birthday :)

Hey Peter: Tell me how it goes -- I officially start to 'push 50' (aka 49) on Thursday!

BTW I saw a guy at Pride yesterday wearing a t-shirt that said "Pushing 50 is all the exercise I need" -- Should have asked him where he got it -- for both of us!:)
