The Perks Of Old Age
  • In a hostage situation, you are likely to be released first.
  • No one expects you to run.  Anywhere.
  • People call at 9 (a.m. or p.m.) and ask,  ‘Did I wake you?’
  • People no longer view you as a  hypochondriac.
  • There is nothing left to learn the hard way.
  • Things you buy now won’t wear out.
  • You can eat supper at 4p.m.
  • You can live without sex (but not your glasses).
  • You get into heated arguments about pension plans.
  • You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
  • You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who walks into the room.
  • You sing along with elevator music.
  • Your eyes won’t get much worse.
  • Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.
  • Your joints are more  accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.
  • Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can’t remember them either.
  • Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size.
  • You won’t remember who sent you this list. 


NEVER, NEVER, NEVER,  under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

    I’m trying to decide whether it’s scary or depressing that I do many of the things on this list. :)
