Synopses & Reviews
It's time to stop hiding that birth certificate!
Virginia Ironside wants you to know that getting old is a good thing-and not in that dreadful "sixty is the new forty" way. At sixty- five, she has no interest in pretending to be young and neither should you. Virginia celebrates all the "issues" that she and her fellow oldies embrace, including:
- Talking about ailments (and the fabulous meds that come with them)
- Grandchildren (the reward you get for not killing your children)
- Wisdom (random disorganized knowledge you get to put a fancy label on because you're old)
No-nonsense, wryly self-deprecating, and totally persuasive, You're Old, I'm Old . . . Get Used to It! unabashedly exalts the virtues of aging.
