A friend emailed me this post from Glamour Magazine that lists all the things you should know by your 30s. (I see there is no mention of dental care or the Spanx-vs.-Flexees debate in this list. Those were the days.)

Then she asked: What are the 50 things you should know by your 50s?

Damned if I know. I'm almost 60 and many days, it feels like I haven't learned a thing.

So I did what any other lazy social-media-savvy blogger would do. I "crowdsourced" the topic with my friends on Facebook. This was a win-win, because it turns out they are way smarter than me.
