Happy Friday! I hope you have had a good week.
From time to time, I realize that I am not as young as I used to be. When that happens, the options are to despair or to laugh about it. I choose to laugh about it and invite you to laugh with me as I realize how many of this following sings of old age apply to me (careful, they might apply to you too!)
SIGNS YOU ARE NOT AS YOUNG AS YOU USED TO BE
You sing along with the elevator music.
You finally get your head together and your body starts falling apart.
Most parts of your body hurt and the parts that don’t hurt don’t work.
You consider coffee one of the most important things in life.
At the breakfast table, you hear snap, crackle, pop and you’re not eating cereal.
Your arms are too short to read the newspaper.
That gleam in your eyes is just the sun hitting your bifocals.
You look for your glasses for half an hour and they were on your head the whole time.
You actually look forward to a dull evening.
People call at 9 p.m. and ask, “Did I wake you?”
Your knees buckle, but your belt doesn’t.
Your back goes out more than you do.
Now that you finally know all the answers, nobody asks you the questions any longer.
It takes twice as long to look half as good.
Your ears are hairier than your head.
You feel like you have more patience, but actually it’s just that you don’t care anymore.
You wonder how you could be over the hill when you don’t even remember being on top of it.
You use words like “equity” and “annuity” in conversations and know what they mean.
You find yourself watching the Weather Channel for no reason in particular.
Thought for the Week
