PERKS OF BEING OVER 50
If you are not over 50, this is what you have to look forward to.



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 dinner 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 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 who sent you this list


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

I am over 50 - one thing though - #7 - Things you buy now will most definitely wear out! No so in the good old days, but now if something lasts a month it is a miracle.

Well, I'm over 50 too and they all apply except:

#5 - everyone always tells me that I should be going to the doctor to get this or that checked but I never go. :o

#10 - I hate heated arguments and never get involved. :p

Also, I had to smile at #13 as the last time I was in an elevator was in the 1970's and the music was from the 1940's and I hated it. So, I guess now if the music is from the 70/80's I'd probably sing along....in my head, of course. :D
