I feel old now
Not because I'm having my midlife crisis (I think I am) or because my back hurts daily (it does) but because in a fit of solidarity, I just joined the AARP, even though I don't have a real job, much less any way of getting closer to actual retirement (aside from my almost weekly purchases of lottery tickets). I figure, they're fighting for Social Security, and I'd like to have it there for when I get old enough to start collecting it, so this is an investment of sorts. Man, it's gonna feel weird getting that card in the mail, though. And my girlfriend is gonna spaz, considering as she's not even thirty yet.
