WHAT THE AARP???

You probably think this sounds ridiculous...Actually it probably is. I wasn't even 50 when I started receiving mail from AARP when I was 48!  What the heck! I was sort of offended...but now...I'm kind of excited. I get a free office bag just for signing up! I get a discounted price of my first year membership for only $12!  The AARP people probably know they are sending all of us into a state of shock by sending reminders of the looming 50's at the age of 45 or so...Just to get us ready! Denial...Denial...acceptance. I get it.

I'M EXCITED ABOUT BEING OVER 50!

Not only that, I'll get discounts on concert tickets! Discounts at restaurants! I can take my Randy out, since he's younger than me, and he'll get discounts because he'll have 'older' person privileges by being with me. And lets not forget..discounts on travel...discounts on insurance, prescriptions and glasses.

ALL THE BENEFITS OF AARP

I think I'm going to check on Insurance first. Then I'll celebrate my lower rates because I'm older and wiser, but redeeming my member points on whatever I want. YES! I'm going to be totally into AARP!!!! AARP!!! I'll be the AARP cheerleader! YES! I'm proud to be an AARP member.
