Hand over that slab'o'seven layer chocolate cake ...

Life can't always be counting carbs, five-mile runs and the latest Getty Center exhibit. Sometimes the soul needs silly fun.

Last night I, and nine of my female co-workers, went to see Menopause: The Musical.

Make no mistake, this is not art. It barely qualifies as even having a plot (four archetypical women meet at a lingerie sale at Bloomingdale's and bond). It's more of a revue piece wherein 90 minutes fly by while watching four very talented women dance and sing to pop songs of the 50's - 70's. Songs with lyrics altered to reflect the theme of coping with "the change."

But before you roll your eyes, understand that this musical is playing to sold-out audiences and now I know why.

I laughed so hard and long during this production I cried off my eye makeup.

Belly laughs and chocolate cake help make life worth living.

I most heartedly recommend you make time to see this play when it comes to your area.

Ok.... As long as I can forego the eye makeup, although the cake sounds like a winner....

The Pause is behind me, and my behind has kind of gotten more below me than it used to be, and my stomach, well it is more in front of me these days...sigh. Actually, I'm not totally fallen apart, my boobs are a little farther in front of me than my tummy. (scream.....the Pause....has taken me prisoner, in front of my refrigerator)

I'll take the choco, but I'll pass on the musical....
