Fabulous Fall Guest Post by Kim Sisto-Robinson of My Inner Chick

    Today I am beyond thrilled to introduce you to a dear friend of mine who also happens to be an amazing writer. I stumbled across Kim Sisto-Robinson's blog, "My Inner Chick", about a year ago and was immediately drawn in by both her humor and her poignant posts. We share a common grief---the loss of our sisters, which makes me feel even closer to Kim because no one understands that kind of loss until they've experienced it first hand.

     I also love Kim's funny outlook on aging, and I wanted to share her unique sense of humor here with you, dear readers. Please welcome her to Meno Mama's site today with lots of comment love!


          12 WAYS YOU KNOW YOU'RE GETTING EFFING OLDER



1.  You tell a student at school that you like her lacy, black Madonna gloves–and she retorts,  “Who is Madonna,  Mrs. Robinson?   ((SIGH))
 2.  You notice a hot pair of jeans you had worn in high school at The Goodwill and they’re in the Halloween section.  (Seriously, dudes?)
 3.  A handsome young hunk with piercing blue eyes smiles at you at the grocery store.(Yeah, you still have it, Kim).  “Hey,  Mrs. Robinson,  remember me?   You were one of my teachers in Kindergarten.  ((Double Sigh)).
 4.  You’re watching The Hangover.  It comes to the part where the guy finds the tiger in the bathroom.  You laugh so hard,  you need to excuse yourself to change your Victoria Secret underwear.  (WTF?)
5.  You’re forced to click the son-of-a-bitching box at the clinic, which says, 45-55 age group.  ( but you want to click,  it’s none of your bloody business, idiot! asshole ).
6.   Your supervisor is 25 years old and calls you mom.  (Life isn’t fair).
 7.   In the beginning,  you thought 50 Shades of Gray was a paint color at Menards.
8.   You can’t remember your “real” hair color.   ( but you feel deeply blonde).
9.   At your last reunion,  you turn to your girlfriends, exclaiming,  “I think we’re at the wrong place.  These old people look like our teachers!”
10.  You might say, yes, yes, yes to another baby,  but your uterus says,  no, no, no!
11.   Partying now means:  Staying home with a nice bottle of Merlot, warm blankets, & Orange is the New Black.  (Don’t you just LOoooooVE Crazy Eyes?)
12.  Your imperfections are (Finally) transforming into beautiful,  dynamic, meaningful segments of the real “You.”
Now,  this is the best part!
 —Darling,  Reader,   what are your thoughts about growing older?  Give me some insight into your experience.

  2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Kim SR!! One of the most supportive bloggy friends (and you are, too, Marcia!) I've ever known, and her writing ranges (very successfully!!) from funny to serious to breathtaking or tear-invoking. On this specific piece, I'm 38, but I've been at #9 since I was 22 and I expect I will be forever! Great piece, Kim!

  8. Who is Madonna??? Yikes! I remember the first time I had to check the 45-55 age box. I just sat there staring at it for a full five minutes in disbelif. Love this and adore you!

    1. I hate that damn age box and am always tempted to lie.

  9. #3 cracked me up, especially given your name (Mrs. Robinson)...am I dating myself?? ;-)

    Seriously though, these days I like to say that I GET to be whatever age I am, even though I still feel 10 inside.

    1. Hey, I NEVER act my age. I'm just a middle-aged woman trapped inside the brain of a twenty-something.

    2. Brilliant. I love that, Sweets!!!!

  10. Well, there is some truth in it, I guess. Anyway, thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  11. OMG, Kim this is fantastic!! I can relate to most of these except the 25 yo supervisor---that's a good thing right (if he's handsome)? Another sign of old age? Visibly sweating when it's freezing in the room or outside. Reminds me of the scene in Bridesmaids when they're all breaking out in a sweat when they get food poisoning. Only this isn't because of food poisoning but old age. Meno mammas!!

  12. I love this! I actually love getting older. Except for this morning. I'm profoundly tired and I am NOT feeling the cubicle life today.
