to someone... somewhere.....

to someone, somewhere - I am an old retiree....
seriously, I keep getting junk mail from the AARP (that's the American Association of Retired Persons), a group of which, I believe, I might actually be a member! at 30....
they send me membership cards every so often, discount booklets, etc.

I also get a lot of junk mail for retirement communities and the like... all personally addressed to me, so it's deliberate...
today's mail? an envelope with information about "miracle ear" - the tiny hearing aid that's nearly invisible! and I got a free coupon for a hearing exam at several locations...
now I know my first name is quite popular among folks over 70 but sheesh....
interesting how market research crap works - I've actually been getting this stuff for a number of years now...
I don't know how that happened.... but maybe I should call their bluff and just apply for retirement benefits already and just hang out at home....

in other news..... there is no news....
that's good though right? no news = good news??
so there you go....

  • You should totally turn up for a free hearing exam!
    They must have got your details from somewhere, those annoying marketers. I somehow get these mailouts for making food only using frozen/canned ingredients - how did they know ;)
    Hope you are feeling better & that the wine helped.
