Do you remember reading "Are You There God, It's Me Margaret?" by Judy Blume? I'm Margaret, only an adult version and instead of anxiously waiting for puberty, I often wonder if there are any "I must, I must, I must increase my bust" exercises I can do to hurry the menopause process along.

Cateepoo, the Song
