The other day, I realized that I'd let the battery on my cell phone run low. A message on it to "recharge" had me hooking it up to the charger. It charged all day. Or so I thought. It turned out that the charger wasn't plugged in to the wall socket.
I attribute this to my increasing absent-mindedness.
But it set me to thinking. (Once again, have you noticed that the strangest things set me to thinking?) Why can't we menopausers have a charger (assuming, of course, that we remember to plug it in)? I can see it now, women hooked up to some kind of energy-boosting device that would keep us going for hours, if not days, at a time. And, no, I don't mean chocolate.
With all the government money that is wasted on ridiculous studies (for example, the study that proved that men and women are different--well, duh!), why can't the government spend a little on energizing middle-aged women? Given our experience and wisdom, we could be a force to be recokened with.
