Perks of Being Over Fifty

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

* No one expects you to run...anywhere.

* 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 4 pm.

* 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 joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.

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

*You're not "up" on the latest dance moves...and you don't care.

What a hoot. You made me snort. My favorite is the brain cells...

Sheesh, I feel most of these and I'm not even 50 yet. Does that make me an overacheiver?

I'm 54 and most of those are true. The rest are probably true, too, but I'm in denial. Oh, and the whole "brain cells dying off" thing? I prefer to think of it as mental exfoliation.

"mental exfoliation." I LOVE that, Gayle!

Thanks for the comment!!

Are you over 50 or over 70??? The people that I know who are over 50 are still running, taking computer classes, care about what they look like and definitely eat dinner well after 4 in the afternoon. While I understand your comment about the glasses, I’m not sure I want to live without sex!!! My body isn’t doing what it did when I was 30, but my mind certainly is! I’ll be swinging into my 60’s and 70’s!!!
