I don't know when I decided to stay 39 forever. I think it was in this century.

Childhood memory: My mother was SO MAD when I looked at her driver's license and tried to add up the years. I was bad at math, so I was about 10 years off.
I used to ask my mother about life in the Civil War. Now my kids ask me. Used to. I hope that the gypsies are treating them well.
Everytime I say it's too hot in here, someone looks at me like I'm Menopausal Mary. But really, sometimes it IS too hot.

As I was saying, oh, yeah, what was I saying???? What was I doing???? What was it needed to buy at the store??? Who was I supposed to call today???? My brain exists on my work Outlook calendar, task list, and my memory consists entirely of saved e-mails.
It's still 1997 isn't it? And I really don't need to know what an RSS feed is, or wear jeggings. I can keep my phone that isn't as smart as I am.
And reading glasses are really really cool!
?!!!Why I stopped at 39
There is that dark day when you realize that you are older than the parents of people you work with. And the ER doctors. And a lot of surgeons. It makes me want to shake my cane at someone!
But I look great for my Age!!!
Emily Dickinson:Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me;
The carriage held but just ourselves
We slowly drove, he knew no haste,
And I had put away
My labor, and my leisure too,
For his civility.
We passed the school, where children strove
At recess, in the ring;
We passed the fields of gazing grain,
We passed the setting sun.
Or rather, he passed us;
The dews grew quivering and chill,
For only gossamer my gown,
My tippet only tulle.
We paused before a house that seemed
A swelling of the ground;
The roof was scarcely visible,
The cornice but a mound.
Since then 'tis centuries, and yet each
Feels shorter than the day
I first surmised the horses' heads
Were toward eternity.
NOW CHEER UP--We're not dead yet!
