PERKS OF BEING OVER 50

If you're not over 50, this is what you have to look forward to.


1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.

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

3. No one expects you to run--anywhere.


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

5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
 

6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.

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

8. You can eat dinner at 4 pm.

9. 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 meteorologist s 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. 

You should send this to anyone you can remember!!

LOL... Six more years for me! I did buy a book the other day about jokes for folks over 40. My BF and I had a good laugh about most of them and, sadly, we could relate.
