Edition #7
Since I did have a birthday yesterday and I am now officially 40 something...here are:
Some reflections on aging:

1 Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and
start bragging about it.

2 The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

3 Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to
know "why" I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads
weren't paved.

4 How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?

5 When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of

6 You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

7 I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.

8 One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a
nice change from being young.

9 Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

10 Old age is when former classmates are so gray and wrinkled and bald, they
don't recognize you.

11 If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at
when you are old.

12 First you forget names, then you forget faces. Then you forget to pull up
your zipper. It's worse when you forget to pull it down.

13 Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft... Today, it's called golf.

Ruh-roh...I think my first comment got lost in space...


When I turned 40, some well-meaning, funny haha friend gave me a coffee cup that said "40 Isn't Old If You're A Tree." I think I told them to STUFF IT!! Age is really an issue of mind over matter, right? If you don't mind, it doesn't matter!!


P.S. I like Algebra...


Blogger julie said ... (1/18/2007 1:32 PM) :

I loved your list. And #1 is so true. After beating cancer, I brag about my age since I'm so happy to have birthdays.
