The Change

Almost everyone has heard of "the change". It is otherwise know as menopause, but the change fits it better. Men and women both go through the change, but in different ways.
If you are young woman, you have something to look forward to, a bad attitude and hot flashes. If you are an older woman you are probably almost there, in the middle of, or been through it. Men and women both go a little crazy between 40 and 55.
Men usually want to see if they still have "it" with the young girls. They buy a hot sports car, usually red, and start roaming around and looking for "trouble". They dress 10 or 15 years younger than they are, just loving the way they look and feel but wondering why their friends are staring at them.
Women on the other hand get real irritable and upset over the smallest thing. They may holler at something or someone for no good reason. Then within a matter of five or ten minutes be calm and pleasant to be around again. These spells come and go all the time, sometimes for years.
And of course there are the hot flashes that women have from time to time. Time to time could mean every half hour or maybe just once a week. But let me tell you, they are very uncomfortable whenever they arrive. Been there, done that, don't want to do it again. Also in the middle of the night women get night sweats, which interrupts sleep and makes them even more cranky.
While going though the change you think you won't live through it, but you do. For women, life is better on the other side of the change, at least I feel that way. I can't speak for the men, but I think they feel that way too. So, if we all have patience and try real hard to understand what the other person is going through, we will all make it through those years in one piece, hopefully.
