My Friend Needs Depends.

Bertie and I have been friends for 19 years, so her visit to my home in Florida was something I was quite excited about. Then again…

See, Bertie is 15 years older than I am, and through her, I get a glimpse of what is ahead for me. I suffered through her hot flashes when she was perimenopausal. But that taught me what my perimenopausal years would be like.

Imagine my horror yesterday day as we prepared to leave for the beach.

“Would you like to use the bathroom before we go?” I asked.

“No,” she said matter-of-factly. “I sneezed in the car on the way here and peed in my pants.” It was spoken as she’s made this public proclamation before.

She wants me to note here that she did change her clothes, and I am grateful for that.

The 19 years we have known each other have passed in a flash. In just another flash, I’ll be 15 years older. Her age.

Then again, I don’t fear the future because I may grow up to be like Bertie.

She is younger now than when she was years ago. Wiser. More sure of herself. Her relationship with her husband is 30 years solid now and she is blossoming with him and with herself in the first year of her early retirement. She has so many dimensions now.

We have traveled many, many miles together. I watch Bertie and I am not afraid of what is yet to come.

As long as I don’t sneeze.
