A “taboo” topic not normally covered in course books, yet one that my generation, getting up there in years, is thinking about, even if we don’t talk much about it outside of girlfriend circles. Laughter helps with pretty much anything. Comic relief for the Menopause Blues, by Cybill Shepherd:
“If you’re feeling dry,
just make yourself a drink.
Splash vermouth and estrogen…
It’s later than you think!
I’ve got those menopause blues.
Those hot-flashing, non-ovulating,
mood-swinging menoplause blues!”
- Here Comes Menopause, sung to the tune of Here comes Santa Clause – for those who have to deal with their moody moms
