Advantages of Getting Older

Another gem from my inbox:

Perks of reaching 50, or being over 60, and heading to/or over 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 where you saw this list.

And you notice these are all in Big Print for your convenience?

Forward this to every one you can remember ---- now!
And never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night

You posted this just after my birthday, which was wonderful timing, because several of the items which did not apply at all up to the week before, suddenly seem a wee bit more applicable.
But I've been told that anyone reaching 41, 51, 61 etc is allowed to say that they are "A year off 40/50/60". Good news!

Ha! You posted this a day before my 50th birthday. It's frighteningly accurate.
