Awesomely, funny and possibly quite true. I can't even live up to the standards of age fifty-two at fourty-two.

This is a very funny blog. The trouble is that a lot of women will probably be able to relate to most of it. That doesn't say much for the male species. I'm up to the 52 stage and if I thought that I was that bad I'd throw myself under a bus. I am dreading the thought that I've got this to come in the future. I like all of your blogs you have a great sense of humour, keep it up.
