Today in the mail, I got an advertisement for this:

The description includes the words: "
ACK! ACK I say! I am not 40! I am definitely not OVER 40! Although my friend Kathy would point out that I am currently in my 40th year, I would have to say, "Shut up, Kathy!"
I am still in my 30's. For another seven weeks, I am in my 30's. And I choose to ignore all indications to the contrary.
Forty is old. I am not old. I do not feel old, or act old or (so I am told) look old. So I plan to go kicking and screaming into my next decade. Once it arrives, I will be forced to embrace it, as the alternative involves Botox and lots of lying. But until then, stay away from me Meredith Viera! Get lost Diane Keaton! I am not in my "middle years." I am still sixteen. I can still read Marie Claire if I want to!
