Yes, I’m Over 40 …

Tue, April 24, 2007


Even though I try my best to keep my advancing age a well-guarded secret, especially on this blog, it’s no secret that I am “over 40.”

I’ve got no problem with that. I became a mother after 40. I finally figured out my calling in life after 40.

“After 40″ is pretty good in my book.

So, of course, I have to subscribe to a magazine for us gals in the after 40 club.

Today, one of their online stories had a catchy title, “This is Your Brain on Menopause.”

I’d like to think that those nights when I toss the comforter off is just because I forgot to set the thermostat back, but I know that since “peri” has made some appearances, “meno” can’t be far behind. So I clicked over to take a quick look.

And then I saw this.

What the ….?!?!?

They may be “celebrating” women over 40, but I’m not ready to be included in this party just yet, thank you very much.

And I have to say, if advertisers like these think us moms of a certain age are in need of this extra assurance, well, I’m going to have to take my magazine addiction, er, I mean business, elsewhere!

P.S., Kristen, please don’t let these be the next products we’re testing!

    Oh my. I can’t imagine who they think their target market is!

    If it makes you feel any better, I’ve been getting invitations to join AARP since I was 25. It was kind of funny for awhile, but I imagine it won’t be soon….

    (btw,something is wrong with the color on your blog. the background is brown + the text is black, so it’s difficult to see)
