The Most Interesting Person I Will Never Forget (excerpt)
At the August Marshall Writers' Guild meeting, the AARP suggested topic of "the most unforgettable person I ever met" presented a challenge to me because, well, I'm not an AARP fan. The first week I turned 50, AARP sent me a loud and clear "invite" to join when I happened to be living with a man who thought I was a few years younger. The more I thought about AARP, the more I wondered why they didn't use their considerable lobbying clout to do more for seniors while raking in big bucks from big pharma advertising for their AARP magazine. Another qualm about the writing topic was one you've all probably had and that is that most people of our years have met so many fascinating, unforgettable people. Lastly, other essays seemed to focus on rural Saline County life and, being born and raised in New York City, I was well out of it. My city experiences differ widely.

But I digress.
