AARP… Time Flies

Today we have a guest post from my friend Susan. After yesterday’s post about time flying, she thought this was the perfect follow up. I, personally, love a good AARP post

Feels like just last month that my daughter Jess finished her first year of college. And then in the blink of an eye..she receives her AARP card … such a wonderful organization with great benefits like long-term care insurance, vision plans and more.

It is true that time sure flies…but this seems particularly quick. Or did AARP mistakenly send a membership card to a 19 year old?

I will figure out the answer after I go upstairs to ask my daughter to clean up her room…

Today’s Mail


You never know what you will find in the mailbox. I am just happy there are no dead rodents in there after last week’s dog food episode. Yes, I am traumatized by that event, thank you for asking.

So what has come in the mail to entertain me. Well, today, I don’t really know because it is 11PM and I am still at my desk and haven’t brought the mail in yet. (scary). But over the last few days I have received:

1. The postcard above. Nice right. It’s always nice to get a little (4×6) guilt in the mail just in case you don’t have enough of it hanging around your house. No it is not from my mother, or someone channeling my dear departed Nana. This was from a local church advertising an Easter service. My favorite line on this card was “Does life offer a reboot?” That would be cool. But do I run the risk of losing data? 

2. ANOTHER AARP card. That makes a total of 4 in the last 6 months. Whoever is in charge of sending out these cards, leave me the hell alone, I am not 50 yet!

3. A lovely flyer from a Crematorium. I have received mail from cemeteries, but never one of these. 

4. Hmmm, I also got a really high-end brochure from a funeral home. Does somebody know something about my health that I don’t? 

5. Oh and this one was great. A solicitation from a stock broker addressed to Arny Levinson (married name for those who are confused). Ok, so I get that when you squint an ‘a’ and an ‘r’ could look like an ‘m’. But this was typed in all caps! ARNY

That’s all I’ve got. Anybody else get any interesting mail lately?

THIS is not OK

A few weeks ago an envelope showed up in my mailbox with a dreaded logo in the corner…

AARP? are you KIDDING me? Yes, my friends, sure enough the American Association of Retired Persons (‘Persons’ – what kind of grammar is that?!) wants ME. 

And apparently they want me real bad because today I received a SECOND friggin’ card. Here are the two cards. Notice the reply by dates.

They are extending my deadline for enrollment! And you will note that the second card is more official, with embossed type. This one is looking much more authentic.

Now, there is nothing I like better than the idea of retiring at an early age, but REALLY, I am nowhere near 50! (Ok, maybe a little near, but still, give me a break). 

If I get a third card can I file for harrassment?
