As I age, I seem to notice some things about myself that I'd never thought I'd notice. I've grown intellectually (thanks to a lot of great bloggers out there), but it's the physical changes that trouble me the most.
Here are some of the bits of wisdom I've acquired over the past few years:
- Gravity is not my friend, and the amount my boobs sag is directly proportional to the increase of gravity that seems to occur every year.
- Doing the "Hoedown Throwdown" (from the Hannah Montana movie) with a bunch of nine and ten-year-old cheerleaders will cause my knees to ache for two days.
- Digestive changes have taught me that I can no longer go directly from eating lunch to riding rides that spin a lot.
- My bladder doesn't like the trampoline. Jump, jump, pee...jump, jump, pee...
- Despite what I thought in my younger years, gray hair is not attractive. (Stock tip: Miss Clairol)
- Sex is awesome after 40.
- Rand-McNally has taken charge of my legs.
- Sleep is an infrequent luxury.
- My back no longer bends as far as it used to, and my chiropractor is my friend.
- No matter how many lunges I do, I still have buns of mush.
