What a Drag It Is Getting Old

I’ve been merrily living each and every ordinary day like I’m the same young, ultra-hip mom I’ve always been when BAM out of the blue Mick Jagger turns 70. I didn’t even see it coming. Did you?  Did he?  No doubt he’ll be getting a proper haircut and updating his wardrobe for something more sensible, distinguished and befitting of a septuagenarian. Or maybe not.  Forget about being young.  Does Mick realize he’s NOT not old anymore?  Were there no warning signs? And what about me?  Am I NOT not old anymore?

The Top Five Warning Signs You Are NOT Not Old Anymore

#5. You don’t care what other people think. Rap is not music and mash-ups are copyright violations.

#4. No matter how hard you try and you try and you try and you try you can’t get no satisfaction without a teaspoon of Metamucil and a strong cup of coffee in the morning before breakfast.

#3. The thought of being a burden on your grown children has a certain appeal.

#2. Brown sugar is for baking.

#1.  The first thing that pops into your head when you hear I Got the Moves Like Jagger  is puckered lips, the rooster strut, single front leg kicks, the 60’s shuffle, frantic clapping, the pelvic thrust and NOT Maroon 5.

  1. is it possible to just injure your hipflexor by like walking to much? My sister had problems with hers and eventually saw a physical therapist now I am thinking i may have injured mine in some way. I cant walk properly and sometimes it just hurts to do simple things. I have an avid life and I dont want this to slow me down. What now?

  2. Your 20s are undoubtedly the most pivotal time in your life. While there are plenty of temptations and distractions, the decisions you make here are truly what dictate your future, as the weak fall and only the strong survive.
