There are a couple of things I do know.
- I know that she would have HATED being anything over 45. I just can't imagine her anything by 36. I remember when she turned 32, claiming that she wasn't going to age ever again.
- She would have been really pissed about all of the No Smoking signs, laws, and the overall societal disapproving over smoking.
- She would have been REALLy pissed about the price of her cigarettes. When she started smoking, I think a pack of her Virginia Slims Menthol Lights cost about 50 cents. Now - each pack is over $6. At a pack a day, that's almost $200 a month in cigarettes. Don't forget the matches.
While she would not have been a very happy 59 year-old, it is nice to know she's kind of still around. And, the kids are doing okay.
