A Fellow Blogger Sends Us This Laugh Today! Thanks Terry!!



I can almost feel myself losing weight .. … by forwarding this to you! You’ll understand at the end.

I’ve seen two shows lately that went on and on about how mid-life is a great time for women. Just last week on the Oprah Channel there was a whole “rerun” show on how great menopause will be .. Puhleeeeeeeze! I’ve had a few thoughts of my own and would like to share them with you. Whether you are pushing 40, 50, 60, 70 (or maybe even just pushing your luck), you’ll probably relate.

Mid-life is when the growth of hair on our legs slows down. This gives us plenty of time to care for our newly acquired moustache.

In mid-life women no longer have upper arms, we have wing spans. We are no longer women in sleeveless shirts, we are flying squirrels in drag.

Mid-life is when you can stand naked in front of a mirror and you can see your rear without turning around.

Mid-life is when you go for a mammogram and you realize that this is the only time someone will ask you to appear topless

Mid-life is when you want to grab every firm young lovely in a tube top and scream, “Listen honey, the Roman empire fell and those will too.”

Mid -life brings wisdom to know that life throws us curves and we’re sitting on our biggest ones.

Mid-life is when you look at your know-it-all, beeper-wearing teenager and think: ‘For this I have stretch marks?’

In mid-life your memory starts to go. In fact the only thing we can retain is water.

Mid-life means that you become more reflective . You start pondering the ‘big’ questions. What is life? Why am I here? How much Healthy Choice ice cream can I eat before it’s no longer a healthy choice?

But mid-life also brings with it an appreciation for what is important. We realize that breasts sag, hips expand and chins double, but our loved ones make the journey worthwhile. Would any of you trade the knowledge that you have now, for the body you had way back when? Maybe our bodies simply have to expand to hold all the wisdom and love we’ve acquired. That’s my philosophy and I’m sticking to it!

Send this to four women and you will lose two pounds.

Send this to all the women you know (or ever knew) , and you will lose 10 pounds.

If you delete this message, you will gain 10 pounds immediately. (That’s why I had to pass this on – I didn’t want to risk deleting this.)

Life is uncertain….eat dessert first!

  1. …And mid-life is when your dentures pop out while eating the dessert first!
    So true, women go through all such feelings of having worned out, but loved ones hide away the mirrors and let us see ourselves in their eyes, where we look all lovable, respectable, graceful and sexy!!! 🙂
    Love the post!The illustrations are perfect!
