I was thinking about you both today.
I wanted to tell you that now that I have reached Adulthood, I have run into my new friend Ms. Menopause.
I tried to embrace her like I embraced Rosie Period, I remember when I hung around you Ms. Childhood I couldn't wait to meet my "friend" Rosie Period. Having her as a friend would be the sign of adolescence.
Then one day out of nowhere poof, Rosie appeared in my life. She came by to visit once a month. At the beginning I was happy to have her because that meant I was cool. Then she became a nuisance coming around once a month to the point where she was dropping around when I had significant dates in my life. That's when I would say , I can't wait to meet Ms. Menopause.
Well they say be careful what you wish for. Ms Menopause is my new buddy, she is worse than my friend Rosie Period. She comes with hot flashes, nausea and headaches. She comes unannounced and over stays her welcome.
With that being said, Ms. Childhood and Ms. Adolescence I want to tell you I loved every moment I lived with you, I miss you and wish I could have you back. Since we know I will never see you again, I will embrace and welcome Ms. Menopause as best as I can.
