I've definitely found that aging is not nearly as terrible as I'd imagined it would be. In fact, thirty has been a fantastic year, and I'm looking forward to the next decade (where I'll get to do my twenties over but just be less of an idiot about it this time). However, there are a few "milestones" that aging brings that I am certainly not looking forward to...at all.
Mammograms--I know they're necessary, but helllooo? Boob squishing machine! No thanks.
Colonoscopies--Blarg. It's not even the colonoscopy itself that's bad (you're in a twilight sleep), it's the "preparation" beforehand. Bah.
Being the Weird Old Aunt--You know, the one that never has kids, enjoys art festivals and rare beers, and talks about her pets ad nauseum? That'll be me. Probably is already, and definitely in ten years.
Odd Fat Deposits--That roll wasn't there in my twenties! I didn't even know you could GET rolls there!
And look, I don't mean to be crass, but...The Graying of My Pubes--Won't that be sad? I mean, because if your pubes go gray, then you know everything--EVERYTHING--is old.
What milestones are you dreading?
