Benefits of being Older
From my email...
Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.
It’s harder and harder for sexual harassment charges to stick.
No one expects you to run into a burning building.
People call at 9:00 pm and ask, "Did I wake you?"
People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
There’s nothing left to learn the hard way.
Things you buy now won’t wear out.
You can eat dinner at 4:00 pm.
You can live without sex but not without glasses.
You enjoy hearing about other people’s operations.
You get into a heated argument about pension plans.
You have a party and the neighbors don’t even realize it.
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 the 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 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.
Last and most important – You have more time for Genealogy!
