Judith Viorst - Unexpectedly Eighty
The newest in Judith Viorst's 'decades' series, here are funny, touching, and true poems about being 80.  She describes the wonder of seeing the world with new eyes—not because of revelations, but because of a successful cataract operation.  She promises not to gently fade away, and not to drive after daylight's faded away, either,  She explains how she's gotten to be a "three-desserts" grandmother ("just don't tell your mom!"), shares how memory failure can keep you married, and enumerates her hopes for the Afterlife (which she doesn't believe in, but if it does exist, her sister-in-law better not be there with her).  As Viorst gleefully attests, eighty is not too old to dream, to flirt, to drink, and to dance.  (Judith Viorst has written many books for children, including the classics Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day and its sequels, as well as books for adults that include Necessary Losses and Alexander and the Wonderful, Marvelous, Excellent, Terrific Ninety Days.)
