I got on the computer last night and applied for Social Security; should get my first check the beginning of February. Why don't I feel old? I'm not sure I even feel like an adult. Maybe it is because my mother is still alive and in fairly good shape (for 95) but I still feel like I'm not even grown up yet, let alone OLD. Somebody told me this week that when marketing to older people, you should keep in mind that they all think they are 15 years younger than they really are. I don't think that's it. I think it is that young people in marketing think we should act 15 years older than we really do. I'm not against getting older; don't plan any plastic surgery, botox, etc. Don't want to get a 30 year old boyfriend or anything like that. I like the age I am but part of me still feels like I'm about 30. I guess insanity does run in my family.
