You're Old, I'm Old-- Get Used to It! by Virginia Ironside
No matter what they say, sixty will never be the new forty. But sixty-five-year-old author Virginia Ironside is determined to convince people that getting old is really not so bad - even for a Baby Boomer who interviewed the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix early in her career.
Here, Virginia Ironside explores the many unsung benefits of aging. There are ailments, but there are also fabulous meds. There are grandchildren - your reward for not killing your own children. And then there's "wisdom," that random accumulated knowledge you can label as such just because you're old. You're Old, I'm Old…Get Used to It! celebrates scattered memory, frequent naps, and mercifully lowered expectations.
From the author who brought us the hilarious No!, I Don't Want to Join a Book Club, Virginia Ironside explains how we can advance in years full steam ahead! With its plainspoken wit and self-deprecating charm, You're Old, I'm Old…is an ode to the advantages and indulgences of aging - and a perfect read for fans of Judith Viorst.
