(By menopausal Betty) aged 50

Where do bingo wings come from ? You go to bed one night and you don’t have them, get up the next morning and they’re like boom ‘have a pair of Bingo wings menopausal  Betty !!’ 

Now if your under the age of 50 you might be lucky enough to have had your wings for a while ., or like Betty got to 50 without them, then woke up the next day with a huge pair. 

Could nature not ease you into gently like it does with the incontinent thing., starts off with a few dribbles .  You know you need the pipe tightened, but there’s not a plumber out there that could fix this pipe ., it’s had some hammering (thank you kind children ) .. 

over the years you slowly watch that dribble go from a drip to a full on raging white water rapid. 

Once it’s gone it’s gone.

But bingo wings just turn up overnight.  

Even the hot sweats are gradual until they’re waking you up every night so drenched you could wring your pj’s out. 

The human body is made up of 72% water, so no wonder we end up dry wrinkly old prunes because we’re leaking water from every orifice ..
