Golly gee
Happy birthday to little old(er) me
Just two more years to Medicare
and I'll be med-bill free

I never thought the day would come when I'd look forward eagerly to getting older, but given the size of my medical bills (and thank goodness I have medical insurance, or they'd be thousands of dollars higher), I can't wait until I turn 65 and am eligible for Medicare. I've seen so many family members and friends become chronically ill, need surgery and/or hospitalization, need daily assistance with bathing, etc., be injured, and/or become disabled before the age of 65 that it's downright frightening.

In the meantime, I intend to cheat on my diet today. :)
