You're Not Getting Better, You're Getting Older

Front Cover

How many times have you heard someone utter the phrase "You're not getting older, you're getting better"? Well, not anymore! You're getting older . . . and here's the book to illustrate just how old you are. Maybe there is some small measure of truth in that phrase, but only if you can ignore worn-out knees, failing eyesight, having the sex appeal of a red cabbage, hair loss (or growth-in all the wrong places), menopause, arthritis, osteoporosis . . . Life as you knew it-parties, spontaneity, climbing a flight of stairs, fun-is over. No, you are not getting better. You are getting older, slowly, painfully, irrevocably. In no time at all, you'll be ready to hang a DOA tag on your big toe in preparation of the coroner's arrival. You're Not Getting Better, You're Getting Older comes complete with DOA toe tags (enough to go around, since all your friends are old, too) and handy drawings illustrating your aging body and the predicaments it gets you into as it grows older.
