Advantages of living after 50! on 07/19/2010 07:22:57 MDT Print View

Perks of reaching 50 or being over 60 and heading towards 70!


01. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
02.. In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.
03. No one expects you to run--anywhere.
04. People call at 9 pm and ask,"did I wake you?"
05. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
06. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.
07. Things you buy now won't wear out.
08. You can eat supper at 4 pm.
09. 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 yesterday.
20.And you notice these are all in Big Print for your convenience.

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

I appreciate the laugh even though I was told after my eye exam last Friday I now officially need bifocals. I did order new glasses but didn't get the bifocals as I think my arms are still long enough.

Well, I just flat out disagree with #9! In fact, at 50, sex without glasses is preferable ... for my partner anyway!

Another:

You can pontificate all you want about going UL to those younger traditional backpackers without getting into too much trouble...they just think you are going dotty.
