Your 50 something friend gives you her copy of The Wisdom of Menopause.
Girl Scouts call you maam.
You die your hair and the grey is still showing even after you've had the crap on for an hour!
When teenagers think people your age don't have sex anymore.
When people you meet, born in your birth year look frightfully old.
When you realize that all the oldies you hear on the radio are only about 22 years old.
When you find mysterious hairs in places that never had these mysterious hairs before.
When you discover that wearing one contact lens actually works better for you.
And when you're talking about having lunch and drinks at the * Reagle Beagle (again) some get the joke and some need some 'splainin'.
I just turned 49 Monday.
I thought that would be a cool thing.
But it actually SUCKS.
