first or all what is middle age? 30? 35? 40? or are you in denial and say it doesn't start until 50? is it when you look like your parents did when you grew up? is it choosing between looking like santa claus or losing the weight and looking like a sharpee? is it when you remember being in the first generation of beatles, stones, aerosmith, or eagles fans? is it when you get a lot of spam about viagra, weight loss, firming body parts, or magic weight loss/fat burning while you sleep pills? is it when the contestants on american idol don't look like adults, but more like some punky teenagers in a high school talent show? thoughts?
