I must admit I have an un-birthday coming up soon. I stopped celebrating my birthdays a couple of years ago. I try to keep from thinking that I am getting older, but here lately it seems that every direction I turn someone is reminding me of my age.
AARP has infiltrated my mailbox, with the precision of a well tuned Army. It started a few months ago, a casual letter in the mail. Now it has turned into a avalanche of mail reminding me of my upcoming birthday and just how old I am. AARP is not the only perpetrator, I have been received letters from assisted living companies and retirement communities. The funny part, is I still have approximately 15 years before I am able to retire.
I told myself at first, it is just coincidental, junk mail that is sent out to everyone. I am seriously starting to have second thoughts about it now. I think it is a serious conspiracy to make me feel my age.
