How Did This Happen?

POEMS FOR THE NOT SO YOUNG ANYMORE

This book is for every woman who has faced “OMG, how did this happen?” moments of aging, from ego-gutting recognitions (your mother’s face stares out from your previously reliable bathroom mirror), to nerve-shredding indignities (there are few hours in life less agreeable than those dedicated to the ceremony known as a mammogram – except the ones dedicated to the colonoscopy). And worse.

This is 40 and then some. This is aging: something that happens to other people, until it happens to you. That gray hair. Those apple cheeks puddling into jowls. To bother with vanity or (pretend to) ignore it? The pap smear scare. Cold sweat at the doctor’s and hot flashes at night. Issues cosmetic and cosmic–but wait, how did this happen?
