Keen Observations on Life … Whether You Need Them or Not

menopause joke from my mother, who survived menopause with the same personality she had going in

1 Comment

My mom and son are pretty good sports in photos. She's been this funny all my life.

I have no idea where my mother gets her jokes. People send them to her, mostly, and she’s got one intolerable, uber-conservative friend whose e-mails can no longer be forwarded to me and the mister because they make us so angry. But this menopause joke made me laugh out loud. Twice. Kudos to whoever wrote it.

My husband, being unhappy with my mood swings, bought me a mood ring the other day so he would be  able to monitor my moods. We’ve discovered that when I’m in a good mood, it turns deep blue. When I’m in a bad mood, it leaves a big frickin’ red mark on his forehead. Maybe next time he’ll buy me a diamond. Dumb ass.

  1. Thanks for the kind words. I do remember telling you to let me know if I freaked out or anything. I was afraid I’d miss it 🙂
