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.
What a drag it is getting old …
