I Am 50, and the Angels Still Sing

Today, my son, 19, returned home from classes at the University of New Orleans, bounded into my bedroom where I was working and said, "So, tomorrow, you'll be over the hill." I said, "What do you mean? I'm already over the hill." And I laughed. He said, "Mom, haven't you heard that 50 is the new 40?
