52

What’s in the number 52? Looks innocent enough. However, when employed in statistics, it means that whatever you’re polling has a better than half rating; as a decibel measurement, it’s a whisper.  In 1952, the average cost of a home was $9,050.  Additionally, it’s the number of weeks in a year and the number of white keys on a piano.  To be terribly obscure, it’s also a significant number in the Mayan calendar.  We all know how important the Mayan calendar is in our daily lives. *cough*2012*cough, cough*

It’s also means that AARP has been sending you membership cards for the last two years; that you see your doctor twice a year instead of once a year; that you’ve had your colon probed at least once, and the mammograms are really starting to wrack up in number.  And because progressive lenses don’t work for you, you have bifocals and now you’re thinking of tri-focals. old age humor It means you don’t especially know what YOLO means, nor do you care enough to Google it.  Ok…I looked it up.  You Only Live Once.  True enough, but are we saying it that much that it warrants an acronym?   

But, if you’re damned lucky, it means you’re 52 years old and in relatively good health.

Happy birthday to me!

  1. Happy day, birthday girl! Last year, I finally had to get two pair of glasses: progressive lenses for regular driving and regular reading, and ordinary lenses in a different prescription just for use on the computer, because the progressive lenses couldn’t handle the two-foot distance. Myopia and presbyopia do not mix well together.

Let's hear what you're thinking!
