Modern art, or absent-mindedness?

Modern art, or absent-mindedness? (Photo credit: Wrayson)

I think I may have posted a few of these before but some of them are new and all of them are funny.

Points To Ponder As You Get Older

  • If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.
  • A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, but is still fat.
  • A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years, while a tortoise doesn’t run and does nothing, yet it lives for 150 years.
  • Just grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked, the good fortune to remember the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.
  • I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.
  • My wild oats are mostly enjoyed with prunes and All Bran.
  • I finally got my head together, and now my body is falling apart.
  • Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.
  • Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.
  • If all is not lost, then where the heck is it ?
  • It was a whole lot easier to get older than to get wiser.
  • I wish the buck really did stop here, I sure could use a few of them.
  • Kids in the back seat cause accidents.
  • Accidents in the back seat cause kids.
  • It’s hard to make a comeback when you haven’t been anywhere.
  • The world only beats a path to your door when you’re in the bathroom.
  • If God wanted me to touch my toes, he’d have put them on my knees.
  • When I’m finally holding all the right cards, everyone wants to play chess.
  • It’s not hard to meet expenses . . .they’re everywhere.
  • The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.
  • These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter. . .I go somewhere to get something, and then wonder what I’m here after.
  • Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.

    I like the one about the whale. He is active all day. Eats lean and is still fat. I think it may be in our genes. This is going to be my excuse from now on

    “The world only beats a path to your door when you’re in the bathroom.”

    That is pure brilliance! 🙂

    Yes, I’ve got my head together, but my body is falling apart! It’s all too true

    Very clever. I like the ones saying accidents in kids cause back seats.

    Ha…now there’s some valuable logic in these lines. 🙂


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
