Senile Denial with a Smile

OK, we really can’t deny it.  We baby boomers have entered a whole different time of our lives.  We have gone from the exuberance of youth and the promise of years and years ahead to achieve our dreams to a path that is now farther from the start and closer to the finish. We are trying to gently settle into this time of life.  We take comfort in sayings such as fifty is the new thirty.  Women in our age group embrace anti-aging, anti-wrinkle products just as much as we embraced acne creams and baby oil in our teens.  In our twenties Jefferson Airplane sang that “one pill makes you larger and one pill makes you small”, now we can’t make it through a day without hearing about what the ” little blue pill” can do.

Amidst the overflow of AARP mailings and the constant barrage of messages  reminding us that we’re getting older, we maintain our humor.  It’s a little “senile denial with a smile moment”.  This was sent to me by a friend but credit belongs to two-time Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Walt Handelsman.

    Very, very funny! All I could think of when the guy sang the “Viagra” line was Robin William’s line that the granny says when grandpa gets amorous, “I thought this war was over!” God help us!
    Thanks for giving this baby boomer a good laugh today.
