I noticed today that the days are growing longer again and I actually get to see a little sunlight every day. It’s amazing what a little sunlight can do for a person! Summers up here are lovely, and spring isn’t bad either, but making it through the winter is like a grueling endurance hike.
Please note the cheerful blue inscription on the outside of this envelope: Free Pre-Paid Cremation! If that doesn’t pique your interest you must already be dead! *rim shot!*
So long as there are things like my husband being harassed by people who think he’s ancient, there is a reason to keep going. He may not win that pre-paid cremation, but as long as we know we have the option to pre-pay something like that I figure life’s worth living.
I don’t know how he got on a marketing agency’s “Old People” list, and I don’t know why, but I’m going to take as a sign that no matter what the economy does, no matter what happens in international affairs, and regardless of the outcome of the Superbowl, someone other than me enjoys telling my husband he’s old and that’s good enough for me.
