( 8:09 AM ) teahouse
So I got a brochure in my mailbox. It was an ad for a new magazine. The front read, "Go Girl! Introducing the One Magazine that Celebrates Women Over 40."
On the cover was a post-menopausal looking woman throwing her arms back and smiling. The brochure was addressed to me; my name was on the pre-printed label.
How did I get on these people's mailing list? I'm still under 30. I order regularly from Barnes & Noble and the Victoria's Secret catalog, and that's it. What part of that screams out "I'm over 40!" ??
Ok, ok, so maybe I shouldn't have bought that one vibrator through mail order last year. I guess that got me included in the frustrated middle-aged housewife target demographic. #
