I turned 50 in January. So what does the world do to celebrate 50 consecutive years of not dying? (A new personal best, by the way — take that, haters!)
- You get to have the most fun medical procedure ever! A colonoscopy! Note to the medical community: You have 5 years to come up with a better way to prepare for it — or better yet, replace it with some sort of MRI-thing.
- You get invited to join AARP. Seriously? I’m only 50!
I’m not a big fan of AARP’s politics, but I am a big fan of discounts. And membership is relatively inexpensive. So, AARP members, what benefits do you see with membership? Do they have better deals on home and auto insurance? Are there any travel benefits that are better than what AAA offers? Anything else I should be aware of?
There is one other bonus: Our local outlet mall gives discounts to “seniors” like me on Tuesday nights. Woo-hoo!
