Another problem menopausers have is that we are usually linked with menopause mates. Mind you, this is not altogether bad. However, it can have its drawbacks, such as when we start to look like each other.
The Wretch and I are both sort of pudgy around the middle. We both have once blonde hair that is more gray and white than blonde now. We both have our hair cut very short. We both have pasty white skin.
As if this weren't enough, we have a cat who is also starting to look like us. She, too, is a bit pudgy around the middle. She too has hair where gray and white are making their presence known. She isn't pasty white, but, I figure, give her time. It will come.
Gem for the day: if you and your mate start looking like each other, smile and think, "Wow, do I ever have good taste."
