Positive aspects of aging...

I love this list! I came across it on the internet, and I'd love to give credit to whomever wrote it, but the author wasn't listed. Enjoy!

1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.

2. In a hostage situation you are more likely to be released first.

3. No one expects you to run into a burning building.

4. People call at 9 p.m. and ask, "Did I wake you?"

5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.

6. There's nothing left to learn the hard way.

7. Things you buy now won't wear out.

8. You can eat dinner at 4:00 o'clock.

9. You can live without sex, but not without your glasses.

10. You can't remember the last time you laid on the floor to watch television.

11. You consider coffee one of the most important things in life.

12. You constantly talk about the price of gasoline.

13. You enjoy hearing about other people's operations.

14. You get into heated arguments about the price of groceries.

15. You got cable TV just for the western channel (or in my case, for TMC, Animal Planet, and The History Channel).

16. You have a party and the neighbors don't even realize it.

17. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.

18. You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who walks into the room.

19. You sing along with the elevator music (just shoot me if I ever do this!)

20. Your arms are almost too short to read the newspaper.

21. Your back goes out more than you do.

22. Your eyes won't get much worse.

23. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.

24. Your joints are more accurate than the National Weather Service.

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

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

You know I was going to try to be witty here. Until I saw the word verification letters: slobioni. What did you write about?

This IS funny. I like the one about lying on the floor. I did this all the time when I was young. Now the thought of it makes my bones ache.
