PAGE 18 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N AT WIT'S END FRIDAY, MARCH 8, 1968 Something Begins At 40, But Is It Life? : By ERMA BOMBECK ·· This week marks the first anniversary of my 40th birth- 0ay. A weaker woman would never have survived it. "Life began" all right . . .depending on what you call "living." · My ego has been dealt one harsh blow after another. In April a waiter inadvertently bumped my shoulder at a luncheon and said, "Pardon me, Sir." This was followed in May by a pregnant woman in her eleventh month who labored to her feet and offered me her seat on the bus! In June, at a party, I was the only one in the room who knew the verse to the Beer Barrel Polka. In July, I rapped a 19-year-old girl in the mouth at the beauty shop who said, "Age is an attitude." August was a banner month. I discovered the carry-out boys fought over me Classes To Begin At YWCA New classes will begin soon at the YWCA, 738 N. 5th Ave. There will be 8 two-hour intermediate classes in French conversation beginning Tuesday, March 19. The 9:30 a.m. classes will be instructed by Mrs. Margarit Hilt. Mrs. John Gatenby will instruct 10 two-hour painting lessons beginning Friday, March 15. A class in beginning guitar will commence Thursday, March 14. Dean Armstrong will conduct the 6 one-hour lessons. On Monday at 3:30 p.m. women's beginners I swim classes will start. Mrs. Rosalie Manriquez will teach 10- half hour lessons on Mondays -and Fridays. · Women's beginners II swim classes will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7 p.m. for ·10' half-hour lessons. Mrs. Elaine Loy will be the instructor. · Class times and further information may be obtained from the YW. ''. Mrs. Rogers Plans Tucson Visit -_ Mrs- Pearl Rogers, of Phoenix president of the Rebekah Assembly of Arizona, will visit Naomi Rebekah Lodge No. 4 at 8 p.m. Tuesday. . A pot luck dinner will be served in her honor at 6:30 p.m. in the Odd Fellows Hall, 135 S. 6th Ave. only because my car had a "console interior." In September, I had my glasses changed after I kicked sand in the face of a beach ball and said, "Come in the water, honey, you're getting Loo much sun." October was a disaster. At Homecoming, a 2000-year-old- man tried to tell me we were in Phys. Ed. together. And in November, a shoe salesman tactfully suggested, "Ortho- pedic boots are on the next aisle." In December my daughter insisted I give away her sun suits. She was 14-years-old now. It was January, though, that really did me in. I went to Denver for a book promotion and was on a panel to discuss, "How To Stay Young." With me was a plastic surgeon {who turned down my request for a house call), a Wild and woo// and wonderful camineau lash broad/com and rugs by OCX" - Q/WJ!fc® Shaggy, unfamed fwoincb pile.

Sitting next to Debbie was a shattering experience. I felt like Twiggy's brother. "I know I'm overweight," I confided to Debbie, "But I was born with congenital hunger." Debbie's concern almost made me break out. "You have lovely skin," she said, meaning to be kind. (This is like someone saying, "That dress is lovely. It matches the veins in your nose.") I'll try for 42, of course. As Lady Bird Johnson said, "It's better than the alternative." Copyright m» FRANKIE'S DECORATIVE FABRICS A LARGE SELECTION OF REMNANTS FOX MANY USES 2208 H.
