This Kaiser Permanente commercial has been around for a year now, but it still makes me smile. Although I sometimes feel almost invincible, the ad reminds me to take care of myself and get the proper medical screenings if I want to grow up to be an old woman.
We live in a youth obsessed society. It's refreshing to see examples of how wonderful and healthy you can be when you grow up into an old woman. Kudos to Kaiser.
Grab your pom poms and sing along to the song by Michelle Shocked.
"When I grow up I want to be an old woman
When I grow up I want to be an old woman
Oh, an o-o-o-o-old, an old, old woman."
The older I get, the more I wonder when are you ever old? Is it just a state of mind? If I could do a cartwheel at 70 like the woman in the ad, then I will be doing much better than I am doing now!
Take good care of yourself. Remember to get your mammogram!
