Does Turning 50 Suck?

Since the person that is turning 50 might feel bad because they are getting older, I think a good idea is to get them a humorous present that will make them laugh!

Think about this - if you are turning 50 years old, you sure have been through a lot and saw many things. You've been alive for the Watergate Scandal, the Vietnam War, the disco fever of the 70's, and the time you've been alive, 12 US presidents have been in office!

It's important for a 50-year-old NOT to dwell on the things in their life that they wish they had done - rather, focus on the things that they HAVE accomplished, as well as the things that still lay ahead of them!

The fact is, however, that you are now middle-aged. Guess what matters now more than ever - your family and friends, and the time that you spend with them. It's important to throw an AWESOME 50th birthday bash to celebrate and show your appreciation.

So what is a good present for a "baby boomer?"
