24 Is The New 50...That's What Kelly and Michael Said

A few years ago media was spreading around a little tidbit...

50 is the new 30...

Like all 50 year olds  were still young and vibrant and desirable...

But really it was for 50 year old women because we all know...
Men don't age...
They become distinguished and dashing and sexy with age...
While women?
Yeah, we just get old.

So today...just as I am on the cusp of 50...
I hear that 24 is the new 50...
And it is disheartening.

Due to higher stress levels and hectic schedules and trying to be and do everything...
Mental alertness, speech and vocabulary...
Memory...
and general fatigue...

Are creating a new generation of OLD PEOPLE...

So, here I am stuck between the Regal and Vibrant already 50's...
And the Haggard and Rundown 20-somethings...

Which makes me what?

48 and about to be fabulous?
or...
48 and so far over the hill that I should  just throw in the towel?

Me?
I say I am on my way to being more fabulous than I have ever been before...

What do studies and Kelly and Michael know anyway?
