I am "forty-something" with my birthday just around the corner, but not 50 which is what the California AARP lists as their age for membership. My wife passed that threshold recently and gets their stuff, offers, airline discounts, coupons, etc. with "her" name on it. But here I am, approaching a birthday not quite 50, and they send me a birthday card. But I still cannot join until I am 50, so WTF? It certainly didn't make my birthday and admittedly, I do have to buy three boxes of 16 birthday candles at the local bakery to make enough of them to be accurate on a cake. And if I have a cake and I have to sit there and light these tiny candles, by the time I reach my age, the first candle is burned down to the nub. Actually this happened ten years ago. But I have a "few" years left before I am 50, and AARP should save the trees and not be sending me their junk mail just yet. So for you fellow old geezers out there not quite seniors, what do you think?
