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,

Those hot-flashing, non-ovulating,
mood-swinging menoplause blues!”
