PERKS OF GETTING OLD



1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.

2. In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.

3. No one expects you to run--anywhere.

4. People call at 9 PM and ask, "Did I wake you?"

5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.

6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.

7. Things you buy now won't wear out.

8. You can eat supper at 5 PM.

9. You can live without sex but not your glasses.

10. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.

11. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.

12. You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.

13. You sing along with elevator music.

14. Your eyes won't get much worse.

15. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.

16. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.

17. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.

18. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to manageable size.

19. You can't remember who sent you this list.

20. And you notice these are all in Big Print for your convenience. 


Show this to everyone you can remember right now!

And remember, never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same day


Thanks Hal

  2. An absolutely spot-on perfect list. I was in bed at 9pm last night only because at 8:30 I declared it "too early."

  3. Like that bottom one these most. I'm sure you understand the meaning of what I comprehend.

  4. These are ever so true Odie. I can relate to every single one. Well, except the last one. I know better than to try that one.

    Have a fabulous day. :)

    it's easy enough to have both.

  7. 1 only applies if you're not J Paul Getty.

    Which most of us aren't.

  8. Adrienne, ain't that something. The only way I can make it to 9:00 is if I take a nap at 7:00.

  9. Ron, I had to read it to Mrs. Woodsterman so she would understand why I was laughing so hard.

  11. Cube, if you have your glasses, you can find the remote, and you no longer need the sex.
