Thanks go to Baristanet for pointing out this hiliarious - and yet sadly too true! - blog, How Not to Act Old.
It is full of appropriate advice for those of us who are, shall we say, well past the first blush of youth, or "of a certain age," as they used to say (and we shouldn't say it because, yes, it would make us seem old).
You'll be happy to note that Pam, the author, includes "Don't Vote Republican" as a way not to act old. To quote:
"All Republicans are, in spirit if not in years, old. They’re conservatives, which by definition means they’re against change and for the status quo. They’re pro-money — and why not, since as old white men, they have plenty. And against abortion — again why not, since as old white men, they can’t get pregnant.
Even if, for some bizarre reason, your politics line up with the Republicans, I still implore you to resist voting with them. Think of how old their presidential candidate is compared with the Democrats’. Think, even more important, of your image."
So check it out - I think most of us can relate to it!
